Biography: One of the key lesson I learn in life is that things must be kept simple, clean and abstract as possible. A girl who you like should know that you like her and that's all that she needs to know. She does not need to know why you like her, when you started liking her, or why she should care. Love doesn't have to be complicated. Keep simple and open as possible. Treat that person as a friend not as a Lover. I love puppies, they are so unpredictable :)

Semesters in GC: N/A
Projects: Dodgem
Biography: I was born in Hong Kong, grew up in Fremont, went to college at Berkeley, and now living in Oakland, working for a software company over in South SF (moving to redwood city soon though). I am a big basketball, football, soccer, badminton fan (and play most of them once in a while). Love debating about interesting topics with people, and love to cook and eat. I didn't start programming until college, and CS3 was my first ever computer science class. Dan convinced me that is what I want to major in college and here I am, a software developer. However, I have a great passion for graphic design, and this semester (spring 2006) i am attending my first graphic design class over at The Academy of Art University over in SF while working.
