    :cool: Always awesome to find out how people got where they are. I think it's great that you love what you are doing and are good at what you do, but you still are humble and are always trying to improve and branch out.

    Phew... I was starting to think that you were that other Asian guy that did night club stuff that always posed with the girls and rambled on about drugs, and hats, and shoes, and stupid shit. (Where did that guy go anyway?) :rofl:
