I am an impact investor who is passionate in the areas of food-tech, alternative proteins, ag-tech, health & wellness (via food and lifestyle) brands for human & pets, new technologies in explorations (space, ocean and remote places) and clean technologies that aids in environmental sustainability. My primary interest is co-investment / syndication deals between $10k-$100k / deal with leading funds invest in Series A or earlier stages. I also invest in, as sole-investor, in pre-seed, MVP stages.
I also intentionally invest into ESG passive funds with thematic on community building & diversity inclusiveness, job quality with nimble education (upskilling, reskilling & outskilling) and clean tech.
I am a strong believer of human potentials regardless of socio-economic and physical background & encourage anyone I met during my journey to reach their potentials (such as getting people to live a healthy and active lifestyle or being personally practice self-conscious sustainability for a better world!)
Currently, I am the Head of Transformation: Americas & Asia-Pacific at GXO Logistics Inc. - the world's largest pure-play contract logistics provider. Prior to GXO, I was at Hain Celestial working cross-functionally on various topics from transformation, M&A and ESG.
Before my business career, I served as a Teach For America teacher and as a public policy fellow at the South Carolina Policy Council/Charles Koch Institute. Being a high-school math teacher through Teach For America and to transform my students from uninterested in math to exceeded the standard curriculum growth is still consider my toughest job I ever had.
Outside of investment and corporate work, I'm a competitive triathlete/duathlete and competing as a member of Team USA Triathlon in ITU World Championship Age Group races since 2016. Another fun fact in my triathlon journey is completion of 18 full Ironman Triathlon and qualified for the Ironman World Championship at Kona Hawaii in 2022.
As a Resident Member of The Explorers’ Club and involve in the club's Next Generation Explorers Network (NGEN), I enjoy outdoor nature & scaled some of the tallest peaks in the world. I helped funded the Club's Famous Firsts Annual Fund to advocate the ideal of explorations that advance field research, scientific exploration and resource sustainability. I am also a member of Milken Institute's Young Leaders Circle, TopTier Impact, Aspen Institute Society of Fellows and Socrates Program Fellow, Echoing Green Direct Impact Fellow and Association for Corporate Growth.
