Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Taiwanese-American lived/worked in Taipei, Jakarta, New York, Los
Angeles, San Francisco and now in Shanghai. Looking for real people
in a surreal city.
I came from a conservative Kuomintang family and spent my
adolescent life in Southeast Asia. I was a FOB whitewash wanna-be
in California and tried piercings, tattoos, motorcycles... Now I'm
just a corporate hipster- Healed my piercings, removed my tattoo,
donated my 400CC.
I'm being told I'm "extensively focused", having some hobbies. I
like Chinese painting, performing arts (watched 30+ musicals, 7

loved ones to tell them I love them the night before I had to take
Malaysian Airlines 4 times in a week for a convention in Langkawi
just four days after the MH330 incident. Hey at least I have the
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Keep old friends, old memories, networking. I still keep my high

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Morning black coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Work-life balance, professional and personal aspects and how to
excel and be happy in both worlds. It's not the cliche of work hard
play hard, but how to work wisely and have quality time to myself
and my loved ones outside of work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
