My relationship with technology started as love-hate. I attended the USA's top STEM high school. Overwhelmed by the quantitative emphasis, I ended up an Anthropology major - emphasizing a holistic approach to problem solving.
After graduating, I travelled to China with an NGO and lived in a Buddhist temple coordinating cross-cultural education programs. When the program ended, I began working with a Beijing tech startup - leading me to programming. I found web development to be the perfect combination of the creative, technical, and social worlds I wanted to balance. Having found my match, I packed my bag and dog, and dove into the heart of tech - San Francisco.
I want to build things that are easy to use, and backed by user data. Within the next 5 years, I will attend a master's program in statistics or applied mathematics, transitioning into data science and process optimization. Several years after which I envision myself returning to school once again - this time for a doctorate in pursuit of machine learning. I want to end the struggle of man vs machine, by making machines understand people.
