I lived in Taiwan for about 15 years and moved back to California in late 2008. I have been in San Diego ever since I moved back. In the years I lived in Taiwan I was fairly active here on Forumosa and really enjoyed the forum. My wife and I might be moving back to Taiwan sometime over the next few years and so I thought I would start following things in Taiwan more closely. And the best way to do that is----get active on Forumosa!
By way of a short introduction, I am an attorney by profession. When I lived in Taiwan I was involved in human rights and criminal justice reform. I also had an interest in Chinese martial arts history and wrote a couple of books on that when I was there in Taiwan.
When I returned to California, I took over my family’s business which handles the electronic security for the Port of San Diego. I still have some involvement in criminal law; I volunteer as a Superior Court Judge Pro-Tem doing traffic cases and some small claims. I can’t say as I do much Chinese martial arts anymore, instead I have been doing judo and Brazilian jiu jitsu since my return. We are lucky here in San Diego, it is a hotbed of BJJ talent.
I look forward to getting to know everyone who I used to know on the forum and meeting some new folks too.
