My Background

At age of 28, I  had a life changing experience. I thought being a “good person” and having a strong work ethic were the two basic ingredients to experience success.

Education

As a continuous learner, I can’t help engaging in the educational process. I am forever grateful to the institutions and professors I had the pleasure to learn under.  The MIT motto is “Mens et manus”, which is Latin for “Mind and hand.” I strongly believe learning and applying is something that should be continuously done in both the physical and spiritual realm. The DTS motto is “Teach Truth. Love Well.” These words are definitely words to live by as well.

My Personal Life Credo

Everyone should have a personal credo. What do we stand for and live by, especially when circumstances change? My credo is what I want engraved on my tomb stone, and for it to be true about me.

  • Love - Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, and soul. (Deuteronomy 6:5; Matthew 22:37)
  • Worship - Live in worship, not in fear. (Isaiah 41:10)
  • Engage - Encourage others to have an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:19)
  • Serve - Serve others the same way Christ came to serve us. (Mark 10:45)
