I was made in Taiwan and raised in Los Angeles, California. I am a real estate businesswoman by career and a freelance writer by heart. A licensed California real estate broker, I was the former head of China Practice Group for a global real estate company. I currently work for a nationwide builder helping clients from overseas buy real estate. Since 2000, I am the CEO and Founder of Eight Corners Inc., my own real estate brokerage, investment and development company. My family and I live and work trans-pacifically between Los Angeles and Shanghai, China. I have an MBA degree from Pepperdine University and am fluent in English and Mandarin. Writing since I was seven years old, I completed Creative Writing courses at UCLA where I developed my passion for writing and it's one of my greatest joys. I enjoy writing, getting lost in bookstores with a good cup of tea, hang out with family and friends, travel, watch movies, and cook. The best #hashtag words to describe me are: #YOLO, #pioneerspirit, #teamtaurus, #girlpower, #independentwoman.
