Who Am I

I'm an engineer and businessman from Ashburn, Virginia.

I currently work with American small businesses, setting up targeted online advertisements to deliver more of the right customers.

Only a few years ago, the highlight of my life was eating my first steak. Since then, during my pursuit of Ein Heldenleben (A Hero's Life), I've found myself swimming in a freezing lake, zooming along an international motorcycle road trip, detained under the suspicion of murder, shaking hands with corrupt politicans, jet skiing in Dubai, dining on the KwaZulu-Natal coast, and playing street soccer in the heart of Mexico City.

This is my quest for excellence, truth, and immortality.

  • Open Source Intelligence
    During the chaos of the botched American exit from Afghanistan, I investigated the Taliban's "disinformation" campaign using OSINT tools & techniques. Turns out the disinformation was coming from elsewhere...
  • Global Trading Challenge
    I set a record that my university's finance department will likely never come close to approaching. I left with a $1.29 million balance, as well as the knowledge & confidence to become a great investor.
  • Ocubloc
    My first startup was Ocubloc, where I worked on commercializing a new IP from Dr. Albert Yee that found nanopillars on a surface could prevent the growth of bacteria.
  • Tutoring
    I went from tutoring the smartest kids in school for calculus, to teaching students of determination basic algebra. I helped them ace the state exam, which they had been failing for years, proving: Anyone can learn anything.
