I am not a career politician. I am a problem solver. I will bring a unique, forward-thinking, and inclusive perspective to the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners.
I am a Georgia native. My mother is an artist and my father is a doctor and engineer. My unique perspective combines art and science, and I try to live in the intersection of the two.
I’m the grandson of Chinese immigrants. My grandfather was an engineer who helped to design Atlanta's MARTA rail. I hope to continue that legacy by bringing rapid transit to Gwinnett County.
I grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta and took advantage of the HOPE scholarship to graduate with highest honors from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Over my life, I have embraced my many passions and have been lucky enough to have worked to solve problems in a variety of industries. I believe my background and experience allows me to bring new ideas to the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners.
I moved to Gwinnett to claim my own piece of America and have a yard for my two adorable dachshunds to play in. Soon after, I stepped up to be president of my neighborhood's HOA board. I have helped to re-engage the neighborhood, improve our web and communications presence, and reverse the trend of dwindling reserves to build the cash reserves every year since. I was able to accomplish this by working cooperatively with my neighbors, even ones with drastically different poliltical views.
In 2016, I graduated with the fall cohort of the Gwinnett 101 Citizens Academy and it was because of that experience that I fell in love with Gwinnett County. I was amazed to see how much attention was given to public services, infrastructure, and planning. After graduation, I was asked to help with the creation of the Gwinnett 101 Advisory Board, on which I still serve. In 2017, I was given the Distinguished Service Award in recognition of volunteering for the most Gwinnett 101 events.
