I was born in New York and grew up in New Jersey. During my early years, I became active in various jobs, computer science, and the martial arts. Those experiences played a big role in my future path and they continue to influence my life today.
I enjoy taking in experiences and hearing interesting stories. I have the good fortune to get a chance to travel through most of the continental USA, parts of Europe, and east Asia. My work assignments took me to London from 2004-2008, and more recently, I am stationed in Shanghai. The experiences in my life are priceless and I hope that the second half of my life can be as rich as the first half.
I want to use this blog to record my current activities and thoughts as well as document my past experiences and influences. I start to realize this blog is turning into half a food blog.
