Ian Hanks

January 22, 2005

Shanghai has been very nice to Ian Hanks.  Ian and his girlfriend, Carmen Cheung (also PiA '05) share a cute little apartment with a tub.  His office is walking distance away, and Carmen's grandmother's house is right down the street - that's where they eat homemade Nanjing food every Sunday night.  When home for Christmas, Ian found out he has a malignant brain tumor and things got intense for awhile.  Still, he came back to Shanghai because there is nowhere else he'd rather be.  Ian continues to work part time at Tractus, his original consulting post with PiA, thanks to his very understanding boss.  He spends his afternoons doing yoga (pictured), and plans to tan it up at the local swimming pool this summer.  Ian has been keeping a blog about his experiences which has created quite a buzz - an article was recently published about it in USA Today and among many others, Lance Armstrong has posted to it.  Through the blog Ian has started a foundation which funds charity projects in China and it has already raised $5,280!  Please check out Ian's blog at www.ian-in-shanghai.com
