My name is Andy. I write essays mostly about traveling, business and technology.

I’m fascinated by international relations and have been fortunate enough to experience a variety of things. As a fan of the Wikipedia and Google worldview that information should be spread freely, I’ve documented my thoughts and experiences with a fair amount of continuity since founding this blog in 2010.

I was born and raised in Orange County, California. Since graduating from UC Berkeley in 2013, I’ve filled a passport with stamps from trips around the world. I currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area, skydive with SOLOSHOT, and am a frequent flyer.

In my free time I enjoy drinking Gongfu Tea, training in Muay Thai, playing tennis, gaming (Dota 2 and Starcraft), and listening to Epic music.
