Languages are important to me

I was the Dean of the Department of Defense’s Chinese Language program at the Defense Language Institute and earned my master’s degree in economics at Nanjing University.

I love learning how to make better decisions faster.

Everything in life is an investment – how you spend your time, money, and who you spend it with.

I’m always interested in a good book.

Reading about philosophy and Chinese history are passions of mine, but I’m also always up to talk about stand up comedy or powerlifting.
