When I was 7 my parents bought me my own computer because I always experimented on theirs; that decision sparked my lifelong curiosity for computer systems, engineering, and programming. Thankfully I am breaking things less these days, and instead aim to help people with their computer problems.
After graduating from Oregon State in chemical engineering, I used my IT skills to help a non-profit in Montana by serving a year in AmeriCorps. Afterwards, I moved to Beijing to work for a Germany IT engineering firm, where I gained invaluable experience in Linux systems and technical consulting. I recently I graduated from the International Chinese language program in Taipei, and am back in the United States after living abroad for 5 years.
