The Southwest Airlines Chinese New Year Parade, a San Francisco tradition since just after the Gold Rush.
Named one of the top ten Parades in the world by the International Festivals and Events Association (IFEA), the Southwest Airlines Chinese New Year Parade in San Francisco is one of the grandest night illuminated Parades in the country. Started in the 1860’s by the Chinese in San Francisco as a means to educate the community about their culture, the Parade and Festival have grown to be the largest celebration of Asian culture outside of Asia.  This year's Southwest Airlines Chinese New Year Parade will be broadcast live from San Francisco on

According to some East Asian zodiacs, 2015 is the year of the sheep. Or is it the goat? Different cultures will give you a different answer for which animal symbolizes this Lunar New Year.

Story
Tagline
"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.” - Leonard Nimoy
Introduction
Risk Taker. Change Maker. Boundary Breaker. Community Builder.

If I were to pigeonhole myself, I guess I’d be a guy who was born to challenge, change, connect and create culture.

I currently design apps and code with students in high school and college, where we get to promote interdisciplinary and intercultural applications to visual communication, computing and gaming.

I'm proud to have been an architectural designer and now a public school teacher with close to 15 years of combined professional experience designing physical and virtual space to presenting technology in education seminars.

I have gained considerable international experiences having traveled and worked in countries within Europe, North America and Southeast Asia. Thus far, I have consciously chosen work experiences that challenge me to constantly learn and grow.

When I am not working with students, I toy with new technology, travel to connect with forward-thinking educators and I play LoL with my teenage brother in the Rift to RELAX.
Bragging rights
I play laser tag (weekly) to boost the adrenaline and student morale; and winners gain bragging rights for an entire year. Must be 42" to play.
