About my life 我的生活

I have many hobbies. I write poems and stories, I dance Zumba and sing, I workout, draw, program, watch lots of movies.
I have a beautiful beloved daughter, Summer, (中文名晴曦), and the best wife in the world who probably doesn’t think vice versa. 

A blend of sciences and arts


I love drawing. Particularly, chalk drawing is one of my favorites.  I’ve enjoyed drawing portraits of renowned physicists to get inspirations.
