Mike Kim


Fireworks, a crossbow, and a go-kart... are amongst a few of the things my parents stubbornly refused to buy me in grade school.

Things I’ve stubbornly failed many times but ultimately succeeded to make instead.

And no matter what it looked like and how unreliable it was, I was still the only kid on the street with a go kart.

I learned early that the best pursuits are ambitious, passionate and uncertain and no matter how they end, they will always be profound.

I am in search of something profound and unusual,
I enjoy pushing limits to the cusp of failure.
I enjoy making people smile,
I find a meaningful life in making progress

I know that I want to do this for the rest of my life

My name is Mike, and it is a pleasure to meet you.
