about me

Bonafide Happiness Engineer

I'm a bonafide Happiness Engineer dedicated to make technology better for everyone. I actively seek new adventures, whether it's traveling or exploring new technologies. I'm a co-founder of DotScotch and a stealth start-up, and an Adjunct Professor at Azusa Pacific University. I graduated from the University of California, Irvine with an MS in HCI, and a BA in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley. I have a strong interest in Human-Computer Interaction, User Interface/Experience Design, and Mobile Design. I was a member of The Berkeley Institute of Design and the Laboratory for Ubiquitous Computing and Interaction.

I enjoy reading about design, business, marketing, and thinking about the future — like how to tap into the endless creativity of the human soul. I pay attention to the smallest details to create a rich and happy experience for everyone.
