Thanks for visiting! A little about me: born in China, grew up in Colorado, went to UC Berkeley. I love adventure, learning, and building. I can’t meditate, but I’ll relax my mind by playing piano, cello, or violin. Willing to go to extremes to make my friends laugh! And always able to find time to volunteer.
