I'm a design lead at Apple exploring different opportunities to invest!
Member since May 2019
My post apocalyptic survival skill is...
Making low cost unstable shelters using tarps and sticks (fun times when I was a Boy Scout)
My biggest challenge...
There's so much to do in the world with such little time to accomplish it myself. That's why I push myself to continue working with others to achieve the positive future that I hope to see in our universe.
I want to invest in...
While my expertise is primarily in tech, I like to keep an open mind and look through different opportunities to help me familiarize myself with a variety of industries. The world isn't small, so I don't want to limit myself as such.
I can be most helpful at...
Within the tech world, I can provide a lot of guidance (and even contribute myself if necessary) to enable better designs or optimize existing ones through my knowledge of module down-selection, schematic capture/layout, and module characterization. I'm also very comfortable with the manufacturing line bringup and planning out clear testing strategies.
I think we can fix America by...
Patience and collaboration. Our society is at a weird point where it's easy to dismiss people because of their different ideologies (not just in politics), and we let previous impressions ruin our future ones of each other. Having patience and putting effort to work together (even when it's a massive headache) tends to yield very positive results and improves future relationships. Also, we need to spend less time talking and more time actually doing things.
My most influential mentor is...
Without trying to sound cheesy, my mom. She brought me to America as a child and was the primary breadwinner for our family working in both business and technology. She has risen up to be in senior executive roles throughout her career, and is a key person I talk to when I want to shape my future decisions. She's kind of a badass, and if I could be even 50% of the human she is, I'd be proud of the mark I leave on this world.

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
