My name is Vinh Quang Nguyen. I was born in 1985 in Saigon Vietnam. My parents and I came to the US in 1993 as war immigrants. We are now very proud and blessed to be US citizens. I graduated from the University of Washington in 2009 in Civil Engineering. Problem is I was into flashlights for as long as I can remember. I remember having a simple flashlight made with a ruler,1.5V bulb, D cell, a wire and some rubber bands. I spent hours under my bed and wandering around the streets of Saigon at night with it. I was 6 years old. Ever since, flashlight was my burning passion. Therefore, my civil engineering career was very short lived after graduation as I realized I must pursue my true endeavors. SkyLumen was officially founded in 2014 but my flashlight work over at candlepowerforums.com has started sometimes in 2008.
My goal is simple, help deliver the brightest flashlights to all corners of the world and make many friends along the way.
