I'm from Vancouver, British Columbia Canada.
Am an Event Designer and Producer for the corporate sector. Have been so for almost 20 years. Sometimes I get to speak to large groups of people about it.
When not otherwise engaged in producing National Trade Shows, Conferences & the occasional Charity Gala - i.e. David Foster & Friends Gala, I sit on the board of the:
- Coal Harbour Residents' Association and
- Centre A - Centre for Contemporary Asian Art
I serve as treasurer on both. Ironic as I have spent the better part of my life steering clear of epitomizing the stereo type of being an Asian Accountant, Lawyer or Doctor.
I was also the Administrator of the British Columbia Chefs' Table Society for a couple years, which has given me a great appreciation of the culinary arts and their undisputed bedfellows - some of the best wine in the world.
When not otherwise eating my way through Vancouver, I adore flea markets, cannot live without jumping on the back of my bicycle at least once a day (yes, even in our famous Vancouver "liquid sunshine") and dream of my last expedition to NYC and an exotic beach some where and when I will get to indulge myself again.
