The best part about Chong is he doesn’t stop until he makes a friend out of you. His subtle humor and easy-going personality allows him to spark up a conversation with just about anyone.

Watching Mo design buildings is like watching an artist paint. He critically thinks about every detail he puts into his architectural plans.

If he’s not working he’s usually playing soccer, spending time with friends, or looking for a new burger joint in town.
