I have been devoted to web development since age twelve. With the innate knowledge in web usability and human-computer interaction, I am committed to help clients in building successful web sites and applications that are conducive to reaching the clients’ goals.
I used to be a software engineer and consultant at Molecular/ Isobar. I have received various awards in web design and appeared in magazines and radio programs. I have been on technical teams in a variety of web projects for clients including Hong Kong Disneyland, Disney Vacation Club, ABC Family, Seagate, AIG, Alico, Southwest Airlines, Network Appliances, Boost Mobile, Wells Fargo, Ernst & Young, and many other local companies and organizations.
I am currently on the Box.net front-end team developing user interaction and interfaces, where I also spend time experimenting new technologies and best practices such as HTML 5 and performance optimization.
Born and raised in Hong Kong, I further expanded his international exposure and became a professional engineer when I went to the United States and received a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the University of California at Berkeley. Since then, I have worked in Hong Kong, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Boston and New York, and am looking forward to getting more overseas opportunities.
