Cary’s Story

My mother named me after Cary Grant because she thought he was exceptionally attractive. My folks are from Hong Kong, so I grew up speaking Cantonese (the less popular of the two most well-known Chinese dialects). My younger sibling is the more charming of the two of us. His name is Kevin.

I used to do Tae Kwon Do competitively and was pretty good at it, but stopped because of ankle problems. Tip: Re-injuring your ankles repeatedly without recovery is not great for them.

I grew up in a house with 10 people. Because I was the oldest of the four kids in the house, I was automatically and always responsible for everyone. I’ve been middle-aged since I was six, and watching shows (Seinfeld) with chaotic farce stresses me out.

My parents were immigrants, and through insane perseverance, they managed to own and run a restaurant for over a dozen years. They were the quintessential, independent mom and pop shop. I am committed to working hard for those like my parents to chase that American dream.

Cary Trivia
