Ted was born in Suffern, New York, as a son of Chinese immigrants. He and his wife Christine have a son and daughter, both aged nine, and are members of the Unitarian Church in Westport. Non-coincidentally, this was also the home church of Denny Davidoff, which explains why Ted is both a dedicated UU and in his second term as a trustee of Meadville Lombard.
