I have always had a strong desire to expand my viewpoint on the world, whether it be digging into new topics to gain a different perspective or learning from past experiences to create new ideas.
I was born in Seoul, South Korea and raised in the ever-growing town of Bend, OR. From skiing in the winter to wakeboarding in the summer and everything in between, the contagious energy of my hometown played a big role in fostering my inclination to step out of the box and experience new things. Growing up in such an environment always encouraged the notion that it is better to keep moving forward rather than remain stagnant.
While studying psychology and business at the University of Oregon, I developed an interest in commercial real estate, drawn to the fact that the ability to connect with others is just as important as being able to read the numbers. Traditionally being one that prefers to tackle matters solo, working with a team of all-stars has taught me that a unified group is always more powerful than an individual.
