WAILIN PHYOBorn in Burma, Wailin came to the US when he was 16.  His first stop was Iowa, but that only lasted 3 months because in Ithaca, he found a strong Asian community and the BOCES carpentry program.  He has studied European masonry techniques in the Netherlands, speaks three languages (Burmese, Thai and English), likes to work on homes, and is saving up to go back home to Burma, build a general store, and live above it.
