My self-summary
I moved to Beijing three summers ago, having spent a few years in New York and Boston. I'm still exploring the city, which has morphed into a gigantic postmodern megalopolis compared to the Beijing of my childhood.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a lawyer. Most of what I do involve understanding people and where they're coming from. Over the past few years, I've been traveling a bit, to England, Wales, the Eastern Seaboard, and Cambodia, India, Pakistan (with awesome military checkpoints and carbine-wielding soldiers) to name a few.

I enjoy reading, biking and drinking scotch. I usually hang out at used bookstores, coffee shops, movie theaters, bars with live music and museums. I try to hike at least a few times a year.

Also in the middle of publishing most of the exciting stuff I wrote in school, with riveting titles such as "On Neuroscience and Psychology's Role in Affecting Our View on Moral and Legal Culpability."

Lecturing on cross-border corporate transactions at my alma mater outside Boston next fall.
I’m really good at
Playing the devil's advocate; that's how I make a living, can't do without it.
The first things people usually notice about me
How mellifluously I speak.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
Esoteric treatises on Indian philosophy, formal logic.

Movies:
Anything Anglophilic or Francophilic. Jean-Pierre Melville.

Music:
Folk revival and neo-classical.

Food:
Old school Beijing, as in mustard cabbage, pork belly in clay pots, and other diverse stuff.
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, a good commuter bike, books, laptop and good scotch.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where to get dinner, when I should go for my next trip to India (Beaches in Kerala? The Darjeeling hill stations?), my trip to Florence...
On a typical Friday night I am
Dinner and drinks with friends. Finishing up the Bhagavad Gita.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The secret buried deep in the heart of the Bhagavad Gita. Just kidding. I'll tell you when I know you.
You should message me if
You know what the Bhagavad Gita is without googling it.
