OVERVIEW & HIGHLIGHTS

  • I was originally planning on becoming a prosecutor, but I put that on hold to pursue video gaming as a full-time career… and it worked.
  • My hands-on experience with small businesses—from helping run my parents’ family business as a kid, to joining a tech and entertainment start-up as my first long-term job—has developed me into a capable and versatile jack-of-all-trades when it comes to running a company.
  • The way I work is far more important to me than the type of work I do. I require an environment with nearly complete freedom and autonomy to unlock my full potential; in exchange, I will provide inhuman levels of loyalty, dedication, and productivity.
  • My CliftonStrengths Top 5 themes are Deliberative, Learner, Analytical, Achiever, and Competition.
  • Contrary to popular belief, I don’t have a near-photographic memory and I’m not good at trivia; that misattribution can instead be credited to the fact that I’m extremely resourceful and highly effective at processing information gathered from search engines.
  • I speak fluent English, conversational Korean, and limited Spanish.
