DENNIS KWON

Dennis is a second-generation Korean American originally hailing from NY/NJ and now a San Francisco resident. He just finished his tour of duty as a television producer for the Discovery Channel show MythBusters and is looking forward to getting back to the engineering world and putting his degree in mechanical engineering (from Rutgers University) to work again. Dennis’s previous jobs included developing volumetric displays, working in the aerospace industry, and doing special effects.Between jobs, he took a “gap year” and traveled around the world.

 Looking for a connection to the Korean community, Dennis became a member of the Korean American Professional Society (KAPS) and has served as its president for the past two years. He is committed to contributing to the Bay Area’s Korean community and has been an invaluable and indefatigable volunteer with KACF-SF, including serving on the Community Grants Committee for two years.

“A little over a year ago, through the SF Korean Consul General, I was connected with KACF-SF and thus was born a great collaboration!  As a volunteer for KACF-SF's Community Grants Committee, I was able to gain a greater understanding of many of the area's Korean community organizations -- especially the dedication and determination needed to meet the challenges of serving the Korean communitiy. I and KAPS look forward to continuing to work with KACF-SF to support their philanthropic commitment to the Korean community of the San Francisco Bay Area. They have already made big strides towards Korean empowerment, forming connections among the Korean community and assisting those in need.”
