Henry Wong

I was born and raised in San Francisco as a first generation Chinese-American during the 1970s. I grew up as the youngest child in a family of eight kids here in the heart of San Francisco Chinatown on the corner of Pacific and Powell. I began working part-time as a legal assistant in a small law firm processing workers' compensation claims while I attended classes at City College of San Francisco to complete my FAA Airframe & Powerplant license in 2002. I made the decision to transfer to San Francisco State University due to the downturn in the airline industry after the 2001 terrorist attacks in New York, the Pentagon and United Flight 93. I eventually earned my degree in Industrial Art & Design in 2006 as well as completing my certification from the CEL paralegal program in 2008 by taking night classes.

I am now married to my college sweetheart, Stacey, and together we have two amazing daughters named Chloe and Penny. Chloe is really into soccer and is currently playing midfield on her school team at Roosevelt Middle school. Penny just started taking classes in traditional Shaolin Kung Fu as a gold belt novice and recently earned her first stripe. Together we reside in a very modest home in the Inner Richmond district here in San Francisco.

In my spare time I do some writing for a small local paper called "The Westside Observer" as a roving reporter doing odd articles and random reviews about places and/or events here in San Francisco. I am also a lifelong motorcycle enthusiast and I am always looking forward to riding my motorbike up and down the Bay Area's coastline with nothing but the pavement ahead and the Pacific Ocean to either side of me.
