Something interesting about me:
I was born in Germany, and I can speak German. That was a pretty interesting childhood because I moved to the United States—I was this seven year-old Asian that only spoke German. I confused a lot of kids!
What do you do outside of work?
I’ve DJ-ed since I was 15, and my last gig was at the Ultra festival last September. I’ve taken a break to pursue wingsuiting, which is like skydiving but with a wingsuit. It’s pretty tough, though; you have to do like 200 skydives before you can start, so I spent all of last year pursuing that goal.
If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
French fries. I think McDonald’s fries are pretty classic.
A life hack:
When you travel in Southeast Asia, always, always, always do carry-on luggage only. I hate spending time in the airport. I come from Los Angeles, where you would spend three to four hours at the airport, and here at Changi Airport if you only have carry-on luggage you can check in and go straight to your gate—it’s amazing.
Which famous person—living or dead—would you want at your dinner party?
Bruce Lee. He’s an idol of mine, and I’m a martial arts enthusiast; I’ve been obsessed with him since I was a kid. I used to look a lot like him because my mum gave me this stupid bowl haircut, like what Bruce Lee was really famous for. I think we were at the airport one time and this guy came up to my mum and said, “Wow, your son looks like Bruce Lee.” Ever since then I was like, “Well, if I look like him like maybe I could be as awesome as him”. So I started learning all the martial arts styles that he learnt, though I’m nowhere near as awesome.
