4 years after college, worked as an software/hardware engineer and engineer co-founder of many (failed, and not yet failed) startups, I am transitioning towards a lifestyle that doesn't require me pulling many all-nighters and simpler life.

I travelled a lot, at least as much as I can afford. This year 2015 I traveled to 7 countries in south-east asia on a 3.5 months long backpacking trip. I wish I could afford to do it more often. The background picture was from Vietnam.

PADI Rescue Diver, but I just started learning to dive in April this year in Thailand, and I am currently on training to be a pilot in CA. I really hope I like it. Let's see...

Currently training to be a professional pilot! :D I have about 287 hours as a pilot.

I used to work from the wonderful 1871 space in Chicago and lived in Bay Area in part of 2013, 2014. China for 2014.

I don't like Bay Area because many people are hypocrites, everything is really expensive and well.... I just think people in LA are nicer.. and people in NYC are more energetic and diversified and more artistic and philosophical. Sorry folks.. It must be the people I bumped into...

Checkout my twitter or Instagram. Don't follow me just yet.. See if you like it.. Even if you like it don't be in a hurry to follow me. I don't usually follow people until I read their posts for a while..
