    Meet Alex Hughes - Change Agent #0097 of our #SCN1000ChangeAgents Series.


    Alex Hughes is the President of Hypernova Solar, George Mason University’s Solar-Vehicle Racing Team. He started this team as a freshman with the goal to compete in the American Solar Challenge and World Solar Challenge. Now he is a rising junior, and their team of over 30 students works tirelessly to get their first car ready for competition. One of the unique aspects of our team is that, instead of designing vehicles to try and win the competition, they are attempting to design vehicles that are more realistic and market-applicable. They hope that their work will eventually further solar-electric vehicles enough to the point that they will be produced just like any other car. Their student organization is a 501c3 non-profit, which on top of designing and building solar-electric vehicles, also teaches their members the engineering and leadership skills they need to be successful after college.

    On top of this, Alex also run the Mason Entrepreneurship Club, as well as mentor for a FIRST Robotics team in the northern Virginia area. Currently, he is majoring in Bioengineering with minors in Mechanical Engineering and Entrepreneurship, and he hopes to be able to start his own company once he graduates.

    Meet Michael Zhuang - Change Agent #0092 of our #SCN1000ChangeAgents Series.

    Michael Zhuang is founder and principal of MZ Capital, a fee-only registered investment advisor firm located in the Greater Washington D.C. metropolitan area.

    Michael is active in the community. He twice sponsored Melodic Impact, a musical fundraiser for kids with cancer. He volunteered as an instructor for Toastmasters International's Youth Leadership Program. He was on the board of Special Love, Inc., a non-profit devoted to kids suffering from cancer. Recently, he also completed Leadership Montgomery.

    INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY

    Michael's investment approach is based on the Nobel Prize winning research of Eugene Fama and Robert Shiller. He is also deeply influenced by three people: Warren Buffet on value-orientation and patience, David Swensen on multi-asset-class investing and decision framework, and John Bogle on minimization of costs for clients and stewardship of clients' money.

    WORK EXPERIENCE

    From 1999 to 2000, Michael worked as a financial engineer for Societe Generale, the biggest French banking group.

    From 2000 to 2003, Michael was hired by PG&E National Energy Group to launch their weather derivatives trading business. Within 2 years, he became one of the top 3 traders in the field. Nevertheless, he saw first hand the crooked ways of the financial industry where everything goes to make a buck. That experience motivated him to launch MZ Capital.

    WRITINGS

    Michael is the author of an Amazon Best Seller and is a regular contributor to Investopedia, Morningstar and Physicians Practice. He also blogs at The Investment Scientist and KevinMD.

    PERSONAL LIFE

    Michael is married with two children. His favorite pastime is stand-up comedy and storytelling. He was nominated as Top Ten Storytellers in Virginia. He has also won multiple Story League contests in DC and Best Storyteller in Philadelphia's Story Slam. He performed clean comedy regularly in corporate, charity and association events.
