My personal mission is to inspire more people to become creators. The world doesn't need any more complainers and backseat critics. We need creators who build positive things for the world.

My social mission is to accelerate human progression through Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. Helping people move towards self-actualization is a very broad problem, which should keep me occupied for the rest of my life.

I'm currently focused on improving deficiency needs around food, health, and wellness, by building a better-for-you food CPG company. I have no previous experience in the food industry but I'm learning publicly and enjoying every step of the way.

Previously, I worked in tech across early-stage venture capital, product management, and finance roles. As a creator, I've built interest-based projects ranging from an Amazon best-selling book on Quora marketing to a starter kit that helps you host a digital music festival with friends. I've also bootstrapped a six figure revenue education media company that's 99% automated.

I'm also a small personal investor in 20+ companies and 4 funds, all run by friends building good things for society. More details here.

I support education wherever possible. I've spent most of my life teaching and have been involved as a board member for the SF Creative Arts Charter School and Tandem Partners in Early Learning.

These days, I'm heads down building my new company. I've learned a lot from people on Twitter (@kevinleeme) and try to pay it forward by teaching everything I know. I also write occasional tweetstorms [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] in efforts to inspire more people to become creators.
