About ricky

I am a problem solver type of person. If money was not a concern I would focus more on this startup. I've seen my family put business deals together and I have too. But this is a big project, I am ready for a career change and this startup idea is worth the career change. I have determination, focus and drive. They might mean something similar to what you have heard before, but for me these words also means God, Country & Family. Right now, I would like to save country.

Work Experience

Visiting Professor

Pusan National University

September 2010 - February 2017

I was an English Instructor most semesters. I also taught at the English Department and the College of Business, MBA courses. I was even tasked to coach tenured Korean professors to begin transitioning their course lecture into English. My startup idea was also conceived at this university. I was also completing my course work for the doctoral program. I presented this startup idea for a thesis, but it was rejected cause my professor said "...this is not a researchable topic." Well since that sentence, I've made it into a startup.
