In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, theatrical and musical performances, and cultural food from around the world!
“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.” ~ Gustave Flaubert
My favorite thing to do is to go where I've never been. Besides the United States (my residence since 1998) and Taiwan (my birthplace), I have been to 30+ countries and 150+ cities as of 2023. I believe travel is the best way to learn about the world and appreciate the diverse ecosystem and culture we have. In recent years, I have also been promoting sustainable and ethical travel to minimize harm to our environment and to give back to the local communities we visit.
