About Me

As a first-generation American, I see the world from a different angle than some of my peers. I'm not perfect, but I have often taken every opportunity to learn something new since a young age.


My philosophy in work can be summarized in three phrases, transparency, persistency, open to change. Ask me more about it offline.

I've spent the bulk of my life following the digital & technological space evolve and how I could fit in.


I'm primarily interested in the intersection of play & tech and how we can use both areas to improve perception, engagement, and apply them to the real world.


During my free time, I enjoy traveling (pre-covid), reading, playing games, and learning new things.

I received my B.S. in Psychology from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

I received my M.S. in Human-Computer Interaction from the University of Michigan.
