A native Californian, Vu infamously garnered a career as an MIT-graduate-turned-R&B singer-songwriter, over the years competing as a top 100 finalist on American Idol and touring throughout the US and Asia. But deeper to his experience is over 25 years of teaching and mentorships, working with students and teachers throughout the world in pushing the boundaries of personalized learning and EdTech.
Breaking barriers as both an artist and an educator, Vu drove the development and success of Test Prep products & Blended Learning systems at Everest Education VN, and C³ coding for kids at CMS, Korea's #1 creative learning center. In between projects, Vu works as a private mentor and educational consultant, guiding students towards skill and mastery in whatever they set their hearts upon.
Today, Vu works on AI-for-Education solutions at Riiid Labs as the Director of Innovations and Business Development for Vietnam. Envisioning a future where growth lies in designing thoughtful collaboration between man and machine, Riiid's technology serves millions of learners worldwide.
