our story

Note from the Founder

"My life was paved with "too" this, "can't" that, & "stop" these: Chris, you're too talkative, too disruptive, can't listen, can't follow instructions, stop moving, stop daydreaming, sit in the corner... I was always “wrong”. I always felt wrong. Now, I know better."

—Chris Wang,
Co-founder & CEO
