I picked up running to control my pre-diabetes and stay healthy.
2013 Philadelphia Half Marathon
My first race ever was at 13:47/mi pace! I was happy to just finish the course.
2018 Philadelphia Marathon
I gradually increased my mileage to complete my first marathon at 9:13 /mi pace.
2020 Central Park 10K
I continued to train during my PhD years and set a personal record at 6:17/mi pace.
I like that climbing exercises both the body and the mind.
On sunny, cool days, you'll find me bouldering in Central Park!
I enjoy cooking Asian food and baking western recipes.
I build, paint, and restore model kits of Gundam mechs.
I love to capture my favorite moments on camera. Photos on this page were captured on my X100F.
My photos have been featured in a New York Times newsletter ("Spreading the word about anti-Asian hate crimes") and an ABC News Segment ("Celebrating AAPI month and honoring those changing the future")
