Scoopzilla was born on June, 2013 in San Jose, a city surrounded by top-notch ice cream shops. Appreciating quality desserts, the future founders of the company would make long treks to satisfy their milk and cream cravings.
The founding trio eventually tired of their frequent journeys and decided to create a heroic store to establish the presence of a great ice cream store in their own home. Equipped with deep culinary knowledge, the three began crafting original flavors with all natural ingredients, freshest produce, and their own fermented extracts.
Now that they had developed a monster ice cream line with a city for the taking, there was only one thing left to do - Unleash Scoopzilla!
I am the founder of Scoopzilla and I live to eat, not eat to live. I graduated from Santa Clara University, where I boxed for the boxing team. Afterwards I started my career in the finance industry, but the dream was to always be in the food industry. I am a self-taught chef, who learned the very basics from my Grandma as a child. I was also an apprentice chef at a restaurant called The Table. As I grew up I always resonated with the kitchen. There, I dove into a world of my own where I can create and experiment with endless opportunities. Even though I love cooking and eating good food, the best part was how it brought people together and unforgettable memories were made.
I'm a San Jose native and recent graduate from San Jose State University, where I studied the subject of Business Entrepreneurship. As a student, I was a heavily involved member of Alpha Kappa Psi, a professional co-ed business fraternity on campus. I grew up in a family surrounded by hard workers and people who had a passion for cooking by working at Thai Spoons, my small family restaurant. I love garlic, spicy foods and anything with noodles. I drink coffee so much that I have a medium roast blood type. Hobbies include skateboarding, going to the gym, and eating ice cream before dinner.
I grew up in San Jose, CA in a family of chefs and bakers. My parents use to own a traditional Chinese Bakery called Century Bakery. Under the mentorship of my parents, I have grown to appreciate the art of cooking and running small businesses. I graduated from UC Davis with a B.S. in Managerial Economics and I'm currently working at Apple as a Project Manager. Although I dedicate time to work at Apple, my passion is to make delicious treats for family and friends.
