Are you Korean?

I do love Korea. In my three years there, I made profound friendships, studied the language and culture, practiced kumdo, traveled, and ate almost everything I could get my hands on.

Are you an investor, entrepreneur, or an aspiring entrepreneur?

I am not Korean, although I do speak some and have worked for three Korean start-ups as the sole foreigner on the team. The first was a company called Culture Group, which I assisted and consulted several divisions, among them a party-planning division for the exclusive clubs in Seoul, an eco-awareness division, and a T-shirt design division, similar to Threadless. The second was the food discovery mobile application MangoPlate, of which I consulted in their marketing campaign. The third, of which I am still an editor for, is the Korean e-magazine known as CultureM.

What can you offer KSE? And what are you hoping to get out of KSE?

I believe my knowledge as a foreigner who has lived and worked in Korea, as well as the business skills I have acquired, and my connections over Korea, and the world over, would make me a great asset to any Korean entrepreneurial organization.

Introduction

I'm a writer and businessman who spent the last three years writing and working in South Korea. I just moved to New York and am looking to make some connections.
