Kevin Chao Has Arrived At His Destination
September 10, 2014
It's about time that I can finally say that my life feels complete...
I have retired twice at the age of 24. I invested a lot of energy into
academia and the financial services, spent lots of energy at an
educational institution and in the banking world; in July 2014, I took
out my 401K and pension plans from the University System of Georgia
and JPMorgan Chase.
I am engaged with the love of my life with a glamorous house, fancy
cars, animals as babies...
All American blonde (French, Irish, and Swedish) woman;
4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, spacious front/backyards;
Mercedes E350, Mitsubishi Eclipse;
Exotic Australian Bird and Poodle/Shih Tzu/Maltez dogs;
And, we will get married on 10/17/14, exactly a quarter-of-a-century
after the big earthquake in the San Francisco Bay Area...
ON September 8, 2014, I formed my own not-for-profit organization,
which is in academia, an educational campaign, an awareness effort for
those of us who are blind/visually impaired...
