About Me

I was born in Taiwan, but I've moved around a lot in my life.  I currently live in California, but I've also lived in Utah, Nevada, Missouri, Indiana, New York, Illinois, Texas, Virginia, and New Jersey, not to mention a two-year church mission in Germany.  I've averaged more than a move per year of my life, and as a result, I dislike moving.  Fortunately for me, I got married to a wonderful girl named Joyce, and I'm hoping to settle down for a long while with her.

Aside from my wife, there are two things that I am very fond of:  computers and sports.  I am a computer researcher by profession.  That means that I sit in front of a computer all day long and goof off investigating how to do things like breaking into computers and coming up with ways to make computers more reliable.  I currently work for Hitachi Global Storage Technologies, which is one of the remaining six major hard disk drive manufacturers in the world.  My other favorite thing that I love is playing, watching, or discussing sports.  My favorite team is the Brigham Young University Cougars.  I also am a big fan of the Boston Celtics (the reigning NBA champions!) and the New York Mets.  Moreover, I like to play volleyball, basketball, racquetball, tennis, ping pong, softball, and wallyball.

What else do I like?  Chinese food.  I love good Chinese food.  I used to think that the Chinese restaurants here in the US were pretty good, but my wife has shown me how good real Chinese food can be.  I like food in general, but especially Chinese, Italian, and seafood.


Sometimes my mind wanders and thinks about philosophical matters.  Here is a collection of some ideas that I've come up with.
