About Me

About Me

I'm an entrepeneur in deep technology to transition the world to net zero by 2050. I am currently building my latest venture, Veridian Industries, Inc. after graduating from Stanford's Graduate School of Business as a Sloan Fellow. In my spare time, I enjoy playing Go/Baduk, working out, and adventures with my family.

Statement of Values

Inspired by my first course at Stanford, "Leading with Values" with Dr. Ken Shotts. I've added a section on my core values.

1) “A leader must have competency and integrity. Without competency, a leader cannot sustain integrity. Without integrity, a company cannot operate successfully and will rely on lies to survive. Competency and integrity go hand in hand.” 

2) "Few are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rare commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change." - Robert F. Kennedy

3)    “A+ players only want to work with A+ players.” - Steve Jobs

4) "As a great democratic society, we have a special responsibility to the arts. For art is the great democrat, calling forth creative genius from every sector of society, disregarding race or religion or wealth or color. What freedom alone can bring is the liberation of the human mind and spirit which finds its greatest flowering in the free society" - John F. Kennedy

5) "Greatness requires sacrifice. Time, work, and possessions are adequate, but the greatest sacrifices are the delusions we hold dear"

6) There are two types of people: those who push the upper limits of what they are capable of and those who test their lower bounds even if to maintain the status quo. Both inevitably break through their respective barriers."

7) “Words are sacred. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones, in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.” - Tom Stoppard

8) "People strive to be God through perfection and power, yet our divinity lies in our humanity. Yearning for immortality, our scarce existence gives us the power to live forever as legends."
