About me

8xplorer Inc. Founder & CEO.

After Accenture Strategy Group and a drone start-up company COO, founded 8xplorer Inc. in March 2018.

From my own personal experiences of traveling around the world, I felt that “In the current marketplace, the user experience for travel planning individuals is not optimized to match their thought process and behavior, nor does it utilize the latest technology. If no one in the world is challenging this, this is something I need to do for the world. “

I am an entrepreneur, a photographer, an explorer, and an ‘earth hacker’. As a photographer, I produces and sells 300 to 500 calendars each year using my own photography from my travels. As an explorer, I have visited over 300 cities in 68 countries all around the world, including those in the Arctic and the Antarctic.

I often travels to unexplored and secluded places and prefers tightly-scheduled and well-planned trips. My most memorable travel experiences were in Socotra Island, the Antarctica and Aconcagua climb.
