I am passionate about digital media and it’s potential to effect and change the way we interact with the world and each other. I am drawn to the process of creating visual treats. In my spare time I make short videos and I often pull in friends to help me shoot and edit. The creative process has helped me learn a lot about working with others and I’ve met many fabulous people online through sharing my videos. Some of videos highlight my other passion — I love food and I enjoy trying new cuisine. Many of my food adventures are documented here. There is a special place in my heart for fruits. They are fun to play with and consume.
Of all forms of art, I am most passionate about web development. It is thrilling to be able to create visual interactive experiences by stringing a bunch of symbols together.
I am currently employed as web developer at Yahoo, specializing in video players and playback experiences written in Actionscript. In the past, I was a PHP developer for Jumpcut. I’ve also done some product promotion video work for at&t. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Computer Science.
