* George H. Lane III, Lane Company (Top 50 National Multi-Housing Business in nation), Atlanta, Georgia      
* Judge Chung Lee, Magistrate Judge of Gwinnett County (First presiding Asian-American judge), Atlanta, Georgia      
* Frank E Greenlee, L.L.C.CPA of Little, Greenlee, and Dillard, Atlanta, Georgia
Special places my work have been exhibited include:

* The Salmagundi Club showed my painting, [...]
