Right now I'm working at a fabric manufacturing company called Best Pacific. We specialize in performance knit fabrics, elastic webbing, and lace. Our main customers are the world's top sportswear and intimates companies.

I'm part of the Overseas Operations department, a new function in the business focused on expanding Best Pacific's operations outside of China.

I'm here to learn more about business from another industry. I've spent several years in the tech industry and I've noticed a naivete about what it takes to build and run a sustainable, healthy business. I've noticed it in myself as well, and I'm here to get more hands on experience and address this gap.

I'm also taking this chance to spend some time in China and understanding where my family comes from. It's a different world here.
