George is a “third cultured kid” having born in Chicago, moved to Beijing at 8 years old and currently is working in NYC. Growing up, he got to experience both sides of the American and Chinese culture and hopes to one day further strengthen this relationship by being able to empathize and work both sides of the table. George used to be a physics buff back in high school, scoring a perfect 800 on the SAT II Physics exam and receiving a higher grade in the Physics class than an eventual NASA engineer, but decided to pursue what he thought was a different field for his career. He went on to graduate from the University of Notre Dame, with a concentration in Finance. He has been working in the financial services industry ever since.
George takes the time to explain things from the ground up, often with a focus on using charts and diagrams to make his points across visually.
Outside of work, George loves to socialize and work out at the gym. He also has a keen interest in the financial markets and won’t hesitate to exchange his thoughts and criticisms on business models and events.
