Hello Sagehens from Hong Kong! I'm a lawyer currently working at Morgan Stanley and specializing in anti-corruption. I've been back in Hong Kong since 2013 and was in Washington DC before that working at a law firm. Other than my day job I am also on the board of a small regional non-profit called Justice Without Borders focusing on cross-border civil litigation for migrant workers.

I was born in China and moved to the US at the age of six, went to high school in Hong Kong and then continued to boomerang back and forth between East and West. When not at work in the office or on the non-profit, I'm always trying to improve my Chinese, work on my cooking, hike more trails and read more books!
