Founder, Mike Kai, has been developing websites for companies since he was 14.

He developed AsianConnections.com as a personal project to help empower people to connect globally and to take the Asian experience mainstream.

He felt the need to develop an online community to celebrate the achievements and portray Asian people in real life, as diverse, multi-dimensional people rather than the stereotypes most commonly found in mainstream media.

Today, thanks to Mike's vision and activism, AsianConnections.com is pleased to have as its advisors and partners an impressive group of American and Asian-based leaders from many disciplines including media, business, news, ecommerce, education, law, government, food, travel, health, feng shui, music, sports and entertainment worlds.

San Francisco Mayor Willie L. Brown inaugurated AsianConnections.com with Mike during a Fall, 1998 trade mission to China praising the site as "helping to bridge people, cultures and countries."

Mike brings fresh, youthful ideas to his direction of the concept and content of AsianConnections.com and its affiliated sites within its network including YanCanCook.com, BenFongTorres.com and StudioLA.com.

Mike is now studying at Yale, and co-managing his ventures in coordination with talented AsianConnections professionals spanning across the globe from San Francisco to Shanghai. In 2002, he has launched a new venture called CollegeEntrance.com to help young people to get into the college of their choice.

He has interviewed diverse personalities from skateboard icon Tony Hawk, martial arts stars Jet Li and Jackie Chan and Jet's "Kiss of the Dragon" co-star Bridget Fonda. Mike's exclusive interview with Jet Li, made Internet history, as the first Hollywood bilingual simulcast between three websites (Mike's interview was broadcast in cooperation with Warner Bros. and Chinadotcom) in the U.S. and in Asia.

Prior to college, Mike was also a world ranked race car driver, ranked #1 in his division nationally in the Quarter Midget Racing Association. Mike holds the world record for the fastest lap ever completed in his division on a 1/16 mile oval track. This record was achieved after seven years of training and racing on the national racing circuit. Mike also enjoys snowboarding, is an Advanced Certified SCUBA diver, loves sea kayaking, and goes fishing regularly with his friends.
