1. Tell us about yourself
I was born in Incheon, South Korea near the airport. When I was at 10, my family moved to Torrance, CA and we lived there for 5 years. Then I returned to Korea, finished my education and also served in the Korean Army. Currently, I work for Korean airlines as manager in DFW airport. 3 Years ago, I also worked in Moscow, Russia as same job and compared to that experience, my life is great here especially because the warm weather and crossfit. I’ve been married for 5 years and we have a 2 year old daughter. Regretfully, my company has called me back to HQ, so I’ll be leaving back to Korea soon. But I will always remember the good times, the best coaches and the wonderful people of Crossfit 3040.
