In 2012, he was selected to be the Head Master at Tiger Kim’s flagship school in Clemmons, NC, which, under his leadership, has grown to be Tiger Kim’s largest training center. He was also the head master at the Tiger Kim’s location in Tega Cay, South Carolina, where he was responsible for growing a new school.
