  • What I am thankful for this Thanksgiving

    November 15, 2019 by

    올해 상반기에 나는 미국에서의 15년이라는 세월을 정리하고 한국에 왔다. 한국에서 보낸 이번 한 해는 내 인생에서 정말 기억에 남는 일년이 될것 같다. 작년은 비교적 더욱 화려하고 성취감이 들었던 해였다면 올해는 여태껏 일을 쫒느라 미쳐 챙기지 못한 인생의 소중한 부분들을 재정비하는 해였다. 미국에서는 잘 보지 않았던 한국 드라마도 엄마 아빠와 저녁때 같이 보고, 할아버지와 산책도 다니고,… Read more

  • How do we invest in our most emergent global crises?

    August 25, 2019 by
