First things first
- Hello! I'm a computer science major at Yale University. I can code, design (UX/UI/visual), illustrate, manage, write well, and do a variety of useful things. I speak English, Mandarin Chinese, some German (A2/B1) and a smattering of Danish (<= A1). Download my resume (PDF)

A little more
- Creativity (art, music, making) are huge parts of my life. Apart from the marketable skills above, I like teaching, woodworking, learning languages, travelling, learning, and moseying around the internet, etc.
- I have a Twitter, I guess. Not 100% sure I have it figured out.
- I enjoy writing, and my nonfiction blog (mixes personal/professional) is Jess in Mannheim. In my free time I also do a lot of art, which you can view in my portfolio.
- For the truly curious, the old stuff page contains assorted pieces of useless personal trivia.
