Q: When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A: Growing up, there was never a clear image of what I wanted to be necessarily, but I did know that I wanted to be someone that could help others.
Q: Who did you look up to either when you were younger or as you progressed in your career?
A: I have always looked up to my parents. As immigrants, they worked hard to stand where they are today, and every day is a constant reminder to have the same drive and work ethic they do. My dad is from Hong Kong and my mom immigrated from Vietnam. My dad was the one who first got me into golf, then eventually it escalated to high school golf and college golf at Cal State LA for two years.

Q: What do you do in your daily job or life to inspire other minorities to get them interested in the game of golf or into the golf business as a career?
