The best part of InsightPact for me.

The best part about InsightPact is what we stand for. In other words, our values and, more importantly, how we embody them in our day-to-day work.

I would describe InsightPact as “we are an organization working to make a positive impact on the world by facilitating complex conversations and ideas into actions”.

A bit about me.

I am a proud father of a three-year-old little monster named Ryker. I grew up in Los Angeles, California, USA, with friends from very diverse backgrounds. I love travelling, food, and snowboarding when I am not working or spending time with family.


Where am I from?

I was born in Bangkok, Thailand, and my family immigrated to California, USA, when I was about four years old. Currently, I live in Bangkok, Thailand.


Why InsightPact?

I found InsightPact on Linkedin while I was job hunting after returning from being a full-time dad for almost a year. I joined InsightPact because the organization’s values resonate strongly with me.


The book and movie that changed the way I think.

Book - The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking

Movie (or rather TV series) - Definitely “The Universe” on the History channel.

The TV series came first in that it ignited my interest and curiosity in the Astros, resulting in me reading The Grand Design. Learning more about our universe and its many mysteries is extremely humbling and makes me realize how insignificant and minuscule some of our worries may be. It’s a very humbling and meditative experience to understand where we fit into the grander scale of the universe.


How I practice well-being & wellness in my day-to-day life.

I like to believe that I am generally very easy-going and often not wrapped up in stressful situations. However, for me, actively practicing wellbeing and wellness means being aware of when I need a physical, mental, and emotional vacation.

As I am approaching my 40s, wellness has become even more top of mind for me. In keeping to a healthier lifestyle, I often allocate 30 minutes daily to physical activities such as biking or walking.


My morning routine.

I would say routine is my style. It helps me be productive and not have to expend too much mental energy.

My routine during the weekdays generally involves:

●     waking up,

●     showering,

●     having a cup of coffee,

●      turning on my computer to read emails,

●      & looking at my calendar to see my schedule for the day.


My playlist right now.

I grew up in the 80s and 90s, so I often find myself indulging in some old-school hip-hop from artists like 2Pac, Biggie, Nas, etc., and, on occasion, some slow-jams ;)

By nature, I LOVE movies, so when I have some time to myself, I often like watching movies and TV shows. My current shows are Umbrella Academy and Cobra Kai.
