Hi! My Name Is [What?]...My Name Is [Who?]

My name is...not Slim Shady. I thought I'd take a brief moment to introduce myself to any readers (all two of you).

I was born in New York City. It was cold there.
I moved to Southern California when I was four. As a result of having a Mexican babysitter when I was young, in addition to speaking English, Mandarin, and Taiwanese, I also speak fairly good conversational Spanish. Growing up, I was really really nerdy good at school, won piano competitions, and did a bunch of extracurricular activities. With the exception of not being outstanding at either math or science, I was pretty much a living, breathing Asian-American stereotype.
I did all my higher education on the East Coast. I went to college in Cambridge, MA. Then I ventured to Washington, DC and earned a law degree. I have since returned to California.
harvard grad
Having been denied television during my childhood, I have more than made up for that deprivation in my adulthood. Some call me The Walking TV Guide. My favorite band is Weezer. I have an abnormally obsessive penchant for Paul Frank paraphernalia. I like singing and dancing, despite the fact that I am not particularly good at either. I really like food. I think exercising is the devil. I sweat easily. Correlation between those last two points? Perhaps.

I am not completely enthralled with the practice of law, but I am good at what I do and thankful for my job. I like the place where and the people with whom I work. I like the color orange. I don't cook. I'm allergic to chocolate, but I still eat it sometimes. I hate cats. I love to travel. I have a weird sense of humor. Tact is not my forte. Oftentimes, I am honest to a fault.
And that's me in a nutshell.


  1. How did I just see this post? Is it new? It made me smile bc it's funny to read about you after I kmow most of these thimgs already (but not the hating chocolate part).

  2. I love the picture of you on stage. Was that a spelling bee?

  3. It's a small world after all, it's a SMALL, SMALL world.

  4. interesting how you look semi thin in these photos.........

    just sayin'

  5. Maybe you should focus more on keeping food OUT of your mouth rather than putting it IN...ya know, write an uninteresting blog about that!! Just a thought....
