My background is in Enterprise Computing such as ERP and MES system as a developer, architect and project manager. But in the past few years, I have turned my focus to web development with Ruby on Rails.

In 2012, I founded my own business in China, concentrated on system development using Ruby on Rails. As the founder and the key developer, I along with my teammates shipped two online applications. One is an online operation system for a leading inspection company in China. The system is still running very well nowadays and the customer is very satisfied with our work. The second is our own business named teamail.biz, which is an online service aimed to do the teamwork with email. The project won the Finalist Award of the 2nd China Innovation & Entrepreneurship Competition (Shanghai Division).

In the past two years, I spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to learn Ruby on Rails in a systematic way along with Tealeaf Academy, which is a full stack online coding bootcamp to help serious individuals to become well-rounded developers. I'm also working on my personal project named DueToday which is an online todo application concentrated on tasks due today.

After work, I like to pass the time reading, travelling and jogging. I ran the Shanghai Marathon twice for its half course and will run my first Vancouver Marathon in the coming May 1st.
