HEY - I’M CHRIS

I’m an Asian-American entrepreneur, digital nomad (currently based in Seoul), and hopefully future Badass Asian Dude.

Life is short, and I want to live a Badass life before my time is up.

What is Badass to me?

Living life on your own terms and doing what you want. Doing cool shit. Being the best at something. Kicking ass and taking names. Crushing life.

Being successful in ALL aspects of life. I’m on my Badass journey, and I hope you join.

Nerdy. Weak. Loser.

Asian male representation in mainstream media is shit. Media is a huge part in shaping culture, and the Asian men in the movies / tv shows that we are exposed to since we are little kids is horrible.

Effeminate, asexual, nerdy losers is how Asian dudes are portrayed. Jin Yang from HBO’s Silicon Valley and Ken Jeong from the Hangover come to mind.

I’m tired of seeing portrayals like this when I know that there is a whole range of awesome Badass Asian Dudes out there in the world.

I want to do my part in spotlighting Badass Asian Dudes and featuring their inspirational stories, actionable advice, and life lessons so I created this podcast.

The Badass Asian Dudes Podcast is a podcast providing the inspiration, tools, and resources to empower and help the next generation of Asian dudes live a Badass life.

My first “business” was in college selling luggage I bought at second-hand stores on eBay.

I started my current ecommerce company when I was 25.

I have lived in cities all over the world like Budapest, Prague, Saigon, Bangkok, Medellin, and a few more.

I have a tattoo on my arm that says the word “CREATE.” It’s about taking control of your life and being 100% responsible for the life that you want. I take this shit seriously.

The book that changed my life was The 4 Hour Work Week. Check out my reading list.

Proud Korean-American - born and raised in Los Angeles.
