A typical day in my life includes…

up at 4:30a, work out, take a 30-minute walk with my dogs, head to the office, eat three healthy plant-based meals a day, wind down in the evenings and prioritize sleep.

I was born…

in South Korea and emigrated to the US in high school.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

I love all the beautiful desert scenery and opportunities to go outside and hike, get active, and camp!

I’m listening to…

whatever great tunes our staff plays in the office!

My family…

all lives in Arizona and they’re all huge supporters in the growth process of my brand.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Richard Branson, who is the CEO of Virgin. The way he built his company was very eccentric and I am inspired by the unconventional approach he takes to everything he does.

One thing I cannot live without…

I want to say all the loving and wonderful people in my life but when it comes to objects, I really love bananas. I eat 3-4 bananas a day.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a civil rights lawyer. As a kid, I dreamt of helping to fight for those who were met by adversity. I feel I still am that kid.

I’m inspired by…

genuine people.

The one person who motivates me is…

my brother Daehee. He’s continued to challenge me to constantly better myself and grow into the person I am now.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

so many things, but one thing I wish I could change is how we treat the world around us, especially our ecosystem and animals.

The perfect day would be…

one where I live without any technology.

My first job was…

as a waiter at a sushi restaurant. My first job in my field was working for a big technology corporation.

My favorite escape…

is reading a history book.

My life…

has been very fortunate.

I’m currently working on…

reshaping the image of hemp in modern, mainstream wellness.

Always…

be positive and put your health first.

Never…

judge anyone. You never know what someone is going through.

Favorite Quote…  

“If the unexamined life was not worth living, was the unlived life worth examining?” – Paul Kalanithi, from When Breath Becomes Air

Biggest Dream…

is to, when I’m old, reflect on my life with no regrets.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

loud gum chewing and when people look at their phone while in a conversation.
