Personal Summary
Hello! My name is Mack and I am currently in grad school pursuing a master's degree in Chinese. I find Chinese language, culture, and people all very interesting, and through the course of the past few years, I have changed my career to include these elements. I plan to bring more Chinese culture to American shores using various business principles, and thus, foster a greater mutual understanding between our two great nations.

I was the lead translator for all Chinese publications.
