Meet GENE

Gene was born and raised in the deep South of Atlanta, GA, with typical "American" dreams of being either a major league baseball player or rock star like Eddie Van Halen. He was also eternally stuck between the two worlds of his Chinese heritage and American roots, which heightened his self-awareness from an early age. Shortly after graduation from Georgia Tech, he embarked on his first international assignment to Toronto, Canada, and then as Country Manager in Taiwan shortly afterward. Gene then spent his next 25 years as a China expat, entrepreneur, instructor, trainer, coach, and business advisor, helping students and executives solve their dilemmas doing business in China. He is the author of Solving CHINA's Unknown Unknowns and the creator and host of the China Myth Podcast.
