Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    I studied Chinese history in college, which didn’t leave me with many job opportunities—fortunately my professor offered me a job at a gaming company.

  • 2.

    I started my career working in gaming but ultimately realized that the impact probably wasn’t net positive for most people and I wanted to be more mission-focused.

  • 3.

    Since then, I’ve tried to find companies that are both mission-oriented and business savvy enough to create impact.

  • 4.

    When I met the people working at Revel, I knew I wanted to join the team—the company had a good product and the leadership team cared about people and the environment.

  • 5.

    I joined Revel as the director of engineering.

  • 6.

    As the company grew, so did my responsibilities, which landed me at my current role of chief technology officer.
