I’m a husband and new father! Natalie & I have been married for almost 9 year now (as of 2024).
I speak three languages and when I’m really tired I get them jumbled up a bit as Natalie can attest. I have trouble answering the question “where are you from”. I am Taiwanese-American, born in the US and raised across two continents and in half a dozen cities. I can make anywhere a home, and I’m used to missing home and feeling perfectly at home at the same time.
I’m the chef of our household. Food is a huge part of my identity and culture. If I weren’t a photographer, I’d probably have a pop up restaurant featuring Taiwanese cuisine. Nat jokes that food is my love language. It’s my favorite way to care for family and friends, and sharing my creations is a way that I feel known and loved. More than anything, I love the way it brings people together.
I do love learning & trying new things. I think part of it is just me being curious and wanting to know how things work. I like to think I’m pretty handy as well. I’m much more inclined to tackle house projects and renovations myself mostly because I think it’s fun…for the most part.
I’ve watched Parks & Rec and The Office so many times I don’t know how to not speak in quotes. Anyone else also obsessed with The Office Ladies podcast? Ted Lasso and Severance is fighting for our affection right now.
I’m always up for a good adventure. I love traveling! Sometimes spontaneously. One time, with a surprise gap in our schedules, Nat and I drove out West and camped out of our SUV for a couple weeks, exploring from Yellowstone to Moab however we saw fit. I think it’s good for the soul to experience new places and cultures.
I believe that all people are equal with the same inherent humanity, love is meant to be celebrated, and life is beautiful.
