Kevin Hong is CBD and Cofounder of Dealflicks Inc, which is yield management for movie tickets. $40 billion dollars are spent every year on movie tickets, popcorn, and soda, but 88% of movie theater seats are empty. Dealflicks partners with theaters to fill these empty seats. Prior to Dealflicks, Kevin dropped out of college and worked with his current partner and CEO of Dealflicks, Sean. They briefly worked together to build a communications business that eventually did over $1.6M in annual revenue. After the business took a turn, Kevin decided to go back to school and he finished with a degree in business and a focus in Finance.

When Chris isn't driving around the U.S. and sleeping in vans for work, he enjoys spending quality time with friends, traveling, and of course, watching movies!
