Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
As a kid I decided that having an interesting life took precedence
over conformity, and that's proved to be a good decision to live
Caring for family & friends, caring for the environment, social
justice/anti-oppression causes, are things I hold dear.
I like to work hard, play hard.
Generally adventurous about life - except food. Sorry, kind of
boring there. Though I once ate a deep-fried caterpillar in
Thailand... (it was like a french fry)
Enjoy being physically active, try to take care of my body (and
mind and heart).
Family is important to me and I love mine. Culture is important to
me and I love mine (Chinese, Japanese, American) - and I respect
that of others.
I'd love to meet someone who would find it fun to sing Beatle songs
together (at least the ones I can play on guitar) for hours on end.
That would be pretty damn ideal.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Making multimedia performance art, directing/editing humorous
environmentally-themed music videos, traveling the world (esp.
Asia) doing various art projects.
Newest performance telling my late-mother's life story and about
Asian American single motherhood (2013). Here's a sample:
Example of an art project in S. Korea (2011):
Latest music video (2012):
I also teach peer counseling classes (listening skills; assisting
people to move through emotional issues).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening to stories, telling stories, most sports that involve a
ball esp. baseball, video editing, fixing mechanical things,
inventing things, cooking what I cook well, eating my own cooking,
playing with kids. Playing. Spelling. Washing dishes. Vacuuming.

Have Wa, The Last Man on The Moon, white pages of the phone book. I

to remember how to spell "bourgeoisie"...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, a guitar, baseball glove & bat (counts as
one), MacBook, Sequoia Natl Park.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to create exciting, fun, powerful art.
How to help people (and myself) move through the things that get in
the way of living more freely and fully.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working on some creative project. But I can be persuaded to do
something else, especially if it involves amusement park rides, ice
cream, or being in nature.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I cried during "Toy Story" when Buzz Lightyear realized he was just
a toy. :D
