First things first
- Hello! I'm a program manager at Microsoft. Before that I was a computer science major at Yale University. I'd like to contribute somehow to a better world.
- I can PM, code, research, design, solve visual problems, write well when necessary, and do a variety of other useful things. I speak English, Mandarin Chinese, some German and
a smattering of phrases in other languages. I have been described as "driven", "nice" and "sharp". Make of that what you will...

A little more
- I'm a multipotentialite, meaning that I have and pursue many diverse interests, some of which I'm even good at. In 2018, I gave a talk on this at the Grace Hopper Celebration.
- Some of those interests: art, UX/HCI, social engineering, languages, games, writing etc.
- I also have a Twitter!
Frequently Anticipated Questions
- Q: Are you aware that your current navigation scheme introduces one additional click if the viewer wishes to see another page?
- A: Yes.
- Long Answer: Not having persistent top-level navigation was a very early design choice made in 2008 based on a gut feeling. I realize now it was because brazenly treating personal pages like commercial sites rubbed me the wrong way (though, of course, these days the two are one and the same). While persistent navigation provides easy access to all of the site's content, it kills intimacy and deliberateness. The purpose of this site is to convince the world that I am a comptetent knowledge worker with useful skills worth paying money for - but also to be an online representation of the human I am. And I am not a product.
