During his undergraduate studies, Sunny completed an exchange semester in Vienna, competed in business case competitions, and led the seminar portion of an introductory accounting course. Between his undergraduate degree and law school, he worked at a commercial real estate brokerage.

Sunny spends his spare time trying out new sports, finding ways to maintain his Mandarin and German, and discovering the quirks of the greyhound he recently adopted.
