As of mid-March, 2023, I am officially a digital nomad. My favorite countries in Europe are Italy, Spain and Portugal. The days when I lived in Orange County, California, I used to fill my days with my sound bath practice and tennis lessons. But alas, I am unable to carry around my sound bath set with me and have to give up teaching tennis for now.
I am, however, writing my book called, “Community-based Governance,” I am a fan of market urbanism which flows from my love of fostering a more sustainable and closer knit community. As a big foodie, I do restaurant reviews on YouTube. Fashion, art, architecture, interior design and all things of beauty are of interest to me.
After completing business school at University of Southern California (USC), I worked at two financial institutions as a financial analyst at the beginning of my work career. Soon after, I switched careers to worked as an engineer at a high-tech company for many more years.
Even as an undergraduate at USC, I was always interested in gerontology so I eventually went back to graduate school and obtained my Master in Gerontology, also from USC. While attending classes, I became an Ombudsman while I was living in San Jose and then around La Jolla where I had bought my second home. After graduating, I became involved with the tiny house movement and decided to set up a tiny house community. At my peak, I had 30 people living in 24 tiny houses on the 10 acres I had procured in Austin, Texas.
Since then, I pivoted again and consider myself retired but still active. With that, I love being a sound bath practitioner to my many friends. Coaching tennis has also been a joy for me and now, I specialize in teaching kids and adult beginners.
As a notary public, I also have the chance to meet new people. I am fully verified and background checked by the state. Again, I will have to wait till I am back in California again if I am to perform any notarization.
These are the things that fill my time apart from reading books on urbanism, community, self-improvement, economics, politics and religion.
