I am a Co-founder & CEO of Elluva, Inc., a new tech startup based in Palo Alto, CA and with operations in New York City.
I founded my first company Sok Aerospace Technologies in the 5th grade. We were designing the world’s first airplane to be powered by solar energy. I saw an article in Popular Science a couple years back about a plane flying off of solar energy. My 5th grade teacher told me it would never happen. Well, it did. Victory.
I fancy myself a creative type, a poet, artist, and musician. I believe that side lends itself tremendously in my business thinking and dealings.
When I was 21 I wrote a song titled, “California”. It was an homage to my high school sweetheart. We spent 5 beautiful years together dreaming and growing. The opening line of the song is, “sometimes we don’t know where we’re going, but we always find our way.”
Take chances and explore. Dream of things never dreamed, and chase them. Get lost in the moment. Get lost on the open road. Get lost in your passion. Because we always find our way.
