Who Am I?
My name is Jonathan Hsu. I am a life-long learner driven by solving problems through creativity and understanding of context. While my path has been non-traditional, my capacity for excellence and leadership has always followed. I thrive in environments where I can help others, have the autonomy to be creative, and am continually facing new challenges. My experiences have shaped who I am and differentiate me from the rest of the world.
