    Cuong Tran

    Being born in Vietnam, I had many struggles. Not only was there a language barrier and cultural shock, but I also had to overcome a variety of other challenges in my life. It has taught me to be patient, resourceful, hopeful. The compassion I’ve developed over the years drives me to truly care about the people I am around.

    I’m a loving husband, a caring father, a cool brother, and an Asian who loves to dance. There are so many layers to me that you can probably cook a giant pot of onion soup.

    I love to help people get better at what they do. I love sharing what I know and I love learning!
