About Daniel Chung

Hi everyone. My name is Daniel Chung and I am fortunate to have the good people here at soccerlens publish my attempts at writing about this great game of ours. Writing is always going to be difficult but it's an extra challenge when we're surrounded by so many good writers here. Despite that I hope I can always bring different perspectives on this game and from an international point of view. I live in New York City and am in a unique position to see how football is popular in so many different cultures and nationalities right here. By day I am a practicing attorney and am still trying to figure out how to combine my profession with my passion without having to become a despised player's agent. Maybe writing will be that medium. I take it one day at a time. I appreciate all who take the time to read my work. I hope to make it worthwhile.
