These words are my compass!
From raising funds for Multiple Sclerosis, to buddying up and training with a blind person whose dream is to run a marathon, to buying a burger and giving it to a person who is hungry. Empathy is really important to me. It’s what makes me human.
Every single thing that I do, I do it with passion. Or I don’t do it at all. From working out 25 hours a week to compete at an Ironman Triathlon, to taking exams and leaving my family in Europe to travel around the world and live and work in Shanghai, New York, SF, Croatia, Hong Kong, Germany, and Palo Alto. In my relationships, I’ll tell you how you make me feel and I will show you how I feel. And I’ll work with you to make each other happy.
I’ll borrow a line from the book “Alchemist,” which encapsulates my philosophy: “when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
From getting into MIT and Stanford, to building the tallest buildings and longest bridges in the world, to competing in triathlons and raising even more funds for MS - I always put the bar high to myself and never get complacent. I love setting, pursuing and achieving my dreams. And then I set new ones.
