About Me

Insist! Because of love

I always believe that technology could change everything and create something beautiful. The technical revolution is coming; I won't miss it.

Enjoy every single day

I am an engineer, traveler, iPhone shutterbug.

Born and raised in Urumqi, the most remote city from any sea in the world, the center point of Asia. I got my bachelor's degree in Beijing. And to pursue my dream of being an engineer, I came to the US.

Now I live in the city near the ocean, Santa Cruz. It is crazy and exciting. Life is cool and... have fun
