I grew up in San Diego, and I lived there from the day I was born to the day I moved up to the Bay Area for college. SD’s a wonderful place to visit and live, with great beaches, beautiful weather, and a relaxing laid-back style to it. If your only impression of Southern California is Los Angeles, you owe it to yourself to visit San Diego!
Along with my wife, I produced, directed and edited Autumn Gem, a feature-length documentary on Modern China’s first feminist, Qiu Jin. Throughout the year, we are traveling around the country to screen the film at universities, high schools and organizations around the country.
Currently, I am the Digital Media Producer with All Things Digital, a Web site devoted to news, analysis and opinion on technology, the Internet and media. In the past, I was a Reuters Digital Vision Fellow at Stanford University, where I am creating technology that enables the developing world to access Internet information and applications. Prior to that, I held various positions at startups and companies around the Bay Area.
I used to preside over the Camera Owners of the Bay Area, the leading user group in the Bay Area focusing on digital photography, from 2002-2009.
My interests are diverse: art, backpacking, cooking, dancing, cycling, photography, and martial-arts. Like everyone, I’ve got opinions and musings on a diverse range of subjects.
I have embarked on a number of adventures around the world, visiting places such as Hong Kong, Japan, Vancouver, England, Switzerland, France, and the epicenter of the world, Bakersfield, California. I share my travel and life experiences through photographs and the written word in my Digital Journal.
