Kym Huynh believes firmly in the idea of the Renaissance Man. He's a lawyer and a professional singer. He hosts three podcasts and manages several more.

WeTeachMe is the brainchild of a diverse fivesome – Kym Huynh, Demi Markogiannaki, Martin Kemka, Rowan McSweeney and Cheng Zhu, two of whom are immigrants. Hyunh is a serial entrepreneur, Markogiannai, a Greek, is crazy about the arts; Kemka has an insatiable curiosity about the world; McSweeney, of Irish heritage, is the marketer with a love for Turkish delights; and Cheng is the group’s code Ninja. Together, they want to change the world we learn, and share knowledge -- kind of like the Spice Girls but with better shoes.
