Thoughts on Badminton Strategy and Training

Blog posts https://tonytam.org/?post_type=post

I hope to share my professional experience as a software engineer for over 23 years, my journey to raise a happy and independent daughter, my love of playing badminton and passion for building a modern sushi restaurant in Burlingame CA, I Privé.


Born in Canton, China. I was raised in Hunan, China.  I speak Mandarin and Cantonese fluently.  I immigrated with my family to San Francisco when I was 10 years old. Not speaking a word of English, I struggled in school until I was in sixth grade when everything clicked. I attended Presideo Middle School in SF, then to one of the best high schools in San Francisco, Lowell High and went to U.C. Berkeley for my bachelors in Computer Science, BA.

 I hope my blog is something I myself will find useful 10, 20, 30 years from now and it will serve as an online diary of sorts that captures my thoughts at the moment and that my future self will find useful to look back on.
