I was born and grew up in a remote village in Zhejiang, southeast China. I was educated at Lishui middle school for 6 years, and then Tsinghua University for 7 years where I studied subject of Nuclear engineering and safety, and Environmental science. I came to the United States in 1994, and studied at University of California, at Los Angeles.
Since January 1997, I have been working for IT consulting firms and software companies. I saw and experienced the uproar and high-flying of IT industry, as well as it sharp downturn. It is a great opportunity and experiene to work in the high-tech hub around such a historical time.
I am really fortunate and very grateful that in my life everything goes smoothly along my way.
[Living a decent life]
I married in 1997 with my wife, Junyu Mai, who also studied at Tsinghua University and UCLA. We had a son that same year. We bought our first house in Valencia, a very nice community.
[Working very hard]
By the end of 2001, I have been working in software and IT consulting area for entire 5 years, which I think is effectively equivalent to 10 years of normal-sense working. It is just business as usual to consistently work for long-hour (16 hrs/day) and multi-tasking, which stretch your potential to a great extent. As rewards: I mastered a great deal of knowledge and skill in my area, as well as gained the respect from colleagues and customers.
[Traveling a lot]
Just to get an idea: my office is 400 miles away from my home, so I just take flight to work and stay at hotel all the time. My frequent travel accounts: more than 50 free tickets from airlines, and countless hotel points that could give me months of free vacation stay in Hawaii.
