  • Year Sixteen | TAF 2013

  • Sixteen years. That's the number of times I've attended the Taiwanese American Foundation (TAF) summer camp. It's a long time to spend with anything (so long that I lost count and spent the entire week thinking that I was on my fifteenth year), and I found myself struggling with the question, how do[...]
  • Missing TAF

  • Taiwanese American Foundation (TAF) is a summer camp that I have attended almost every year since the age of ten.

  • Diana Lee | Los Angeles Lifestyle Portraits

  • Henry M. Chu, Actor | Los Angeles Headshots Photographer

  • If you've been following along with my blog in the past couple years, you might remember Henry krumping on the streets of San Francisco. I've worked with Henry a number of times here and there, and he's always been a great person to work with and a wonderful friend. He's on the up and up in the acti[...]
  • Formosa Betrayed, Now Opening

  • Five years ago, in 2005, it was just an idea. A passion project being born. Starting today, February 26, 2010, the feature film Formosa Betrayed is playing in select theaters across the country. The Taiwanese American community has done an amazing job emphasizing the importance of this weekend (e[...]
