Raised in the UK, China, and Singapore, I'm a trained theater actor and documentary producer.

I jump-started my professional career in management consulting, and spent the past three years creating the business analytics infrastructure at 5.11 Tactical, a growth equity (i.e. TA Associates)-backed innovative performance apparel and gear company serving the global public safety and special forces community. On weekends, I am an elite obstacle course racer, and I aspire to explore the intersection of science, technology, and entertainment to reinvent how fitness and wellness are accessed and consumed globally. 

p.s. I make stunning chicken karahi.
