Fun Facts

  • Back in college, I dabbled in electronic music production and DJing

  • The same track had also been featured on local radio station

  • Performed and DJ-ed in front of 5,000 people at a corporate event

Hard Lessons

  • Stay humble. Everything we have accomplished, owned, experienced, and accumulated is merely temporary "rentalship," never lasting "ownership." We come with empty hands and back to nature with empty hands.

  • Be perceptive. Death will eventually eradicate what was never ours in the first place., i.e. physical body, job title, identity, property, lovers, money.

  • Struggling emotions are usually caused by confusing happiness with joy; intellect with wisdom; and outside validation with life purpose.

  • Be your own creator. Following a "templated" life defined by any authority will leave you feeling as if you are not living up to other people's "standard".

Favorite Quotes

  • "Figure out how to figure it out"— Sam Altman.

  • "Be alone, that is the secret of invention; be alone, that is when ideas are born" — Nikola Tesla.

  • "Entrepreneurship is not about starting companies; it's about solving problems." — Michael Seibel.

  • "What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create" — Laws of Attraction
