My self-summary
I was born of an Irish mother and a Vietnamese father. My father immigrated to the U.S. from Vietnam after the war. He met my mother at a refugee camp where she worked as a volunteer. I'm one of 19 children from my fathers side and the only of my mother. Since i grew up in a heavily immigrant neighborhood I got into trouble with local gangs and was eventually kicked out of high school. I joined the marines where they taught me photography and spent most of my military career documenting disasters and photographing forensics for police.

After i got out of the Marines, i went to college in Santa Barbara and studied Advertising and Photography. From there I went to work in Hollywood and worked on a lot of commercial sets and photographed red carpet events. This allowed me to travel to Europe and other parts of the U.S. often. After that I started my own company and studio until I received an opportunity to recover MIA soldiers in Vietnam and Laos as a forensic and field photographer.

The next 5 years I spent jumping from Hawaii, Laos, Thailand and Cambodia. I really enjoyed this because I was able to give back to my country that has given my family so much and to learn about my history and heritage. During this time i studied the Vietnamese language and now speak moderately. However constant travel and being overseas has gotten hard for me and i missed my family and friends from home.

Right now i'm in transition to go to work with the Air Force as an instrumentation photographer with various agencies that are part of the U.S. space program. (you ever watch the shuttle launch and watch the camera track the shuttle as it goes into space even though the shuttle is miles away, well thats my job.)

Other than that i lead a pretty normal life. I enjoy bbq's with friends, social drinking, happy hours, camping, fishing, parties, social gatherings, live jazz, live bands, dinner shows, movies, theatre, and beer. I do like to go for walks and bike rides from time to time to relax my mind but usually because i dont want to deal with traffic. I have a quirky personality and a dry sense of humor which sometimes can be dark.

I'm not saying, im not an outdoors person. i've been outdoors pretty much my whole adult life in the most extreme places for the longest amounts of time. I'm probably more in tune with nature than most people who think they are. My 2 cents, nature sucks. It's dirty, sticky, yucky and dangerous. My ideal encounter with nature is a state camping site where there's electric outlets, showers, cell phone reception, and only a short walk to my vehicle so i can bail the second i feel like it. This attitude may change once i settle back into California and not doing the outdoors thing professionally.

That being said, yah i can rock climb, repel, live isolated in a jungle or forest, start fires, purify water, set up camp, tie knots, etc. but i consider that as my day job, not leisure.

Thats my summary.
What I’m doing with my life
*** UPDATE*** Just left working recovering the remains of American servicemen in Vietnam after spending 5 years with the program. Going to move back to California soon to working in a program that few people in the world get to do :)

- I am on a recovery team that locates and repatriates the remains of missing in action U.S. soldiers from Vietnam.
- I love photography and work on my artwork when im not on assignment.
- I get 6 months off a year nearly but the other 6 months im in a basecamp in some jungle somewhere in vietnam.
- I love Ha Noi, its a great town and like to drink beer on the sidewalks watching people pass by.
- I love to camp and fish. One of my favorite places is Yosemite in the spring with all the beautiful waterfalls. Spring is great because you get a sense of freshness and being a live.
- I'm also trying to learn Vietnamese at the moment. I'm learning the northern dialect out of Ha Noi.
I’m really good at
- being stupid. i do a lot of silly things and sometimes quite absent minded.
- I also think im pretty decent at photography.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I have a very sarcastic sense of humor. I really like to joke around. I don't take much in life too serious.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like to enjoy a quiet evening reading the dictionary. It really has depth and meaning.

Not very many movies i don't like. I pretty much enjoy them all except for the stupid ones on netflix.

Alright, i love music. It's the only thing that keeps me sane. I enjoy classic rock and early jazz mainly but i have been kinda liking country lately. Which is odd because when i was younger i hated country with a passion but something about listening to music like Hank Williams Jr that makes me happy. I hate country pop though.

not even going to list the food, too long a list and will just make me want it more.
The six things I could never do without
portable bose speakers, my 3g internet stick for my computer, internet, food delivery, a/c, and cold beers on hot days.

also laceless converse shoes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- what is next in life. i believe i've exhausted my time in my current career. it is not the longest job i've had. i've been doing this for 5 years now.
- Where to travel to next.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home watching TV, out to dinner or catching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
that i have been married before.
