Eng is an economist by training, from the Wharton School of Business. He also has experience leading data science and analytics at Apple, Capital One and AT&T.

Eng is the classic immigrant story that can only happen in America. He was born in a refugee camp in Thailand, where his family escaped the Khmer Rouge from Cambodia. Having grown up in Los Angeles, he pursued economics by day trading and playing Poker to pay for his tuition while attending the University of Pennsylvania. There he trained as an economist and afterwards went into Investment banking. Later he would leave the financial world to join the Peace Corps, volunteering in the Republic of Georgia, a year after the Russian invasion. There he met his wife, Jennie, who was also volunteering abroad. They now have two sons.

Eng has presented at companies like Apple, Facebook, & Amazon where he teaches employees how to minimize their tax burden and how to keep and invest more of their earnings so that they can achieve financial freedom.

Eng got into real estate as a way to solve a need for a more predictable source of cash flow which he found in real estate. Listen in as he shares how his tech background, skillset, and love for numbers found a home in real estate and investing, scaling and syndications, Bitcoin and his company Touzi Capital.
