On why he joined the AAPI Caucus:

"A vital university experience of mine was further exposure to diversity, and it was at our alma mater where I met my partner.

My wife has a few identities: she is "nisei" because her mother immigrated to the US from Okinawa, she is "hapa" because she is half Okinawan and half Irish American, and she is a working mother. By being open to diverse identities we, as leaders, can cultivate compassionate change that will impact those we serve.""
