Howdy! I am a student at Stanford University, studying Computer Science with a focus on Artificial Intelligence and Security. I'm grateful that I get to spend 4 years at the heart of Silicon Valley with the most brilliant students.

App Development

I am a big fan of personal projects. Since 2009, I've made 8 web apps. I built them to scratch my own itch. Some got accidentally popular because other people found them useful too.

I will admit that some of these apps are old, don't work well (by today's standard), or might not be functional at all (due to API changes). Treat it more like an archive than a list of you should use today.

Work Experience

I've also had the privilege to work with/in some amazing companies, ranging from a Fortune 500 client to a mom-and-pop shop.

Other Stuff

Originally born in Kaiping, China, I had the good fortune to come to the US in 2008. Although I didn't speak any English upon arrival, I became fluent in 2 years thanks to my patient teachers, supportive family, and a lot of hard work.

I love watching inspirational TED talks, and ended up giving a TEDx talk about young entrepreneurship myself in 2014.

I've done some interviews in the past: 2 Billion Under 20, Web.AppStorm, Double Your Freelancing Rate, A New Take, Doers, SideProject Book, IdeaMensch, The Startup Project, Raising CEO Kids, Sawyer Speaks.

I love road cycling, hiking, cooking, photography, watching sports, and mathemagics.


So many people have helped me get to where I am today. I want to do the same to you. If you have questions about programming, entrepreneurship, app design/development, college admission, studying in the US, email me! I am more than happy to help you out.
