Meet the Team

The Elves of Elfenworks


Connie Kwong

Sr. Accountant

Mrs. Connie Kwong joined us in 2016 with a strong background as a Senior Accountant. While she shines as our Senior Accountant, she's also very generous with her time, training the less seasoned staff and cross-training the team, as well. She's truly dedicated to accounting, and makes that area shine. If accounting were Connie's only focus, it would be enough. But she does more. Connie also is ever at-the-ready to jump in, whenever we have big events, such as the launch of an app, and to QA test any product that has a Chinese language component. She has even helped our President with a bit of Chinese language tutoring. Connie knows that when accounting doesn't run smoothly, nothing runs smoothly, and because of her, we can all shine more brightly.

Kenneth C. Tam

Vice President

Prior to taking the lead as Vice President, Kenneth Tam had a long history of working with us on various finance projects. Born in Hong Kong, Ken moved to California at the age of eight, and immediately began his entrepreneurial career with his own paper route. In his mid-twenties, Ken spent two years as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Ken has twenty years of operating and financial background, building and managing fast-growth companies and startups. Before joining us, Ken held the positions of C.O.O. and C.F.O. at New Life Bakery, and was a member of the management team at Fresh Express, helping transform a commodities vegetable company into the leader of fresh cut salads. Ken started the German subsidiary of Orchid Technology, creating a distribution system that tripled German sales. Ken Tam received his B.S. from University of California, Davis and his M.B.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles. Fluent in several languages, he has enjoyed some of our multi-language projects, including managing all aspects of our domestic multi-lingual apps, as well as multiple concurrent international efforts. A father of two, Mr. Tam is especially taken with children's issues, financial insecurity issues, protection of the vulnerable, the rebuilding of social communities, and with creation of opportunities, opening up America's promise to all who would work hard to attain it.

Dr. Lauren Speeth


Acclaimed documentarian Lauren Speeth PhD hails from family of filmmakers, musicians and writers, and her musical aesthetic informs her work. Two of Speeth's films, "A Concert for Hope" (2008) and "Exploring Hope for Better Times" (2018), bookend a library of purpose-driven films, and highlight the intent to uplift and inspire that have permeated her filmmaking efforts since 2004. She has tackled subjects ranging from eco-green to Celtic green, from yesterday's heroes to tomorrow's change-makers. Her films have been screened in festivals worldwide and have been aired on television including Starfish TV, The Classic Arts Channel, Marin TV, and Denver's Channel 57. The many accolades can be seen on our awards page. An accomplished musician, Speeth has penned compositions, produced and played on albums, conducted ensembles, and performed at fundraisers.
