Multimedia
My dim sum of media.  A few samplings from the media archive.  I've dug into the archives for a few classic clips of my early media adventures.  The ICRT clip at the bottom of the page is in fact my first ever professional news broadcast!


 


LA18 Promotional Video (May 2005/Los Angeles) We put this two-minute video together for our CEO to show the company's main investors what we've been up to lately.  Incidentally, it also gives me a good clip to explain to everyone I know what kind of station I actually for here in Los Angeles.


Interviewed in Mandarin on live Chinese radio in Los Angeles (April 2005/Los Angeles) My weather and entertainment presenter at LA18 also hosts a daily live call in show on one of LA's largest Chinese language talk radio stations.  She invited me on the show one night to talk for a full hour about learning Chinese and living in China.


Interviewed in Chinese on LA18's "LA Living" program (March 2005/Los Angeles) Appeared on the show to talk with host Juliette Zhuo about the station's new management, editorial policies and to take viewer phone calls.  Part two of the interview can be seen here and part three is available here.


KPCC (Southern California Public Radio) interview on Asian issues in the LA mayors race: (March 2005/Los Angeles) 5 minute interview on what impact  the 2005 LA mayors race having on the city's vast Asian population? 


KPCC (Southern California Public Radio) interview on KSCI TV's tsunami relief telethon: (January 2005/Los Angeles) 10 on air discussion about the impact of the 2004 South Asian tsunami on the local Asian population in Los Angeles and what KSCI TV did in response.


Hawaii's Oahu and Kauai Islands: (May 2003/Hawaii) Cruise around two of Hawaii's most beautiful islands. (PC ONLY)


E*TRADE Financial: (March 2003/San Francisco, California) I was the Executive Producer of E*TRADE Financial's ambitious 'Digital Financial Media' initiative that produced national radio shows, TV market updates and an exciting mix of online content.


CNN: (January 2000/Atlanta, Georgia) 'Narrowing the digital divide between the world's technology haves-and-have nots' -- this report was produced for CNN's special coverage of Y2K. 


Associated Press Television: (Summer/Fall1995/Tokyo & Beijing) Together with my good friends Donald Harding and Komako Akai, we oversaw the launch of APTN's Tokyo bureau in 1995.  I was later posted to Beijing where I covered the United Nations Women's Conference among other stories.  This is my demo reel that I shot and edited in Tokyo.


BBC World Service radio: (April 1992/San Francisco, California) Of all my assignments, I am most proud of my work covering the 1992 Rodney King riots in California for the BBC World Service.


Metro News 1044AM: (November 1991/Hong Kong) "The TASS News Agency says the Soviet Union has ceased to exist..." I was 20 years old at the time and had no idea of the profound meaning of what I was reporting.


My first review: This critique of my first radio documentary, Human Rights in China, was published in Hong Kong's weekly TV guide magazine.  This was 2 hour documentary broadcast just one year after 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre.  The program landed me in a bit of trouble with the Chinese government who put me on a 1 year black journalist visa black list.


ICRT News: (March 1990/Taipei, Taiwan) It all began at 3am on a mountain-top studio in Taipei.   At 19 years old, this is my professional news anchor debut.

""Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."




"I want to thank the astronauts who are with us, the courageous spacial entrepreneurs who set such a wonderful example for the young of our country."




"Had we to do it over again, we would look at the consequences of catastrophic success, being so successful so fast that an enemy that should have surrendered or been done in escaped and lived to fight another day."
