Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born and raised in Downtown Los Angeles and grew up in Chinatown. I was raised by my Chinese grandmother and picked up some conversational Cantonese during my youth. I have developed a passion for business through the Investment Club I started at my high school and my reading of Securities Analysis, Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits, and Buffetology. I currently manage my own investment portfolio by using some of the basic ideologies and methods outlined in the book. In my free time I love to play basketball, read books on everything from psychology to physics, or spend time with my friends (although this has recently required spending time at my computer screen). I'm really excited to get involved in a collaborative community at USC and see where my future takes me.

Interesting Factoid

My favorite candy is Black Licorice.
