Get to know Ivan

What do you like to do outside of work?

I like playing video games on my computer with my friends. We stream online to record fun clips, and just have a blast. Most of our games are cooperative, and it’s just an enjoyable time. I also like to snowboard, and travel internationally.

What is an interesting fact not many people know about you?

Everyone in the U.S. pronounces my name as ‘eye-vuhn’, including my American side of the family. Everyone outside the U.S. pronounces my name as ‘ee-vahn’, including my Korean side of the family. I respond to both, but technically my name is the latter according to my parents. Everyone is right.

What is your advice to young professionals in your field?

Don’t be afraid to ask the intent of why something came about. I’ve found it unwise to answer a question that was not clearly asked. Accepting things without question is a quick way to find yourself at the caboose of a derailing train.
