French mathematician and theologian Blaise Pascal wrote, “Man is only a reed, the weakest in nature, but he is a thinking reed.” As artificial intelligence and other unprecedented technologies threaten to redefine what it means to “think”, we need to remember that technology should never replace fundamental humanity and good judgment. I apply this philosophy to my work at KLO, especially in the areas of international taxation, transnational M&As, and international dispute resolution. When I am not quoting great European thinkers, I enjoy spicy cuisine, especially Korean food.
