I am a multi-roots global citizen currently living in Lexington Massachusetts. I grew up in Hong Kong, educated in Hong Kong, England and United States, worked in US, Germany, Japan, Hong Kong and China. I am a technologist, educator, parent, community activist, and blogger.
I am currently working at eMoney Advisor heading up the Architecture and Machine Learning group. With a small team of architects, we are working closely with development teams to build and rebuild our platform for growth.
Prior to that I was at Curriculum Associates, a education publishing turned education technology company, creating software for K-8 students.
In 2014 I returned from Shanghai where I created an alternative investment peer-to-peer trading platform while creating a US styled agile start up tech team with smart local staff.
I worked at CustomMade Ventures, a fast growing start up in Cambridge MA, created their payment systems. I founded and ran Imperial Consulting, Inc, helping start up entrepreneurs realized their business visions.
Before that I was the CTO of AdvisorTech Corporation, building a global financial platform bringing him to Frankfurt, Tokyo, Seoul, San Francisco and back to Boston. Along the way I flew over 1 million air miles.
You will find me practicing and teaching Tai Chi and other martial arts weekly. I do a lot of simple walking, hitting at least 10,000 steps each day. I read books both on my Kindle, and paper when they are not available electronically. Here are some of my favorite quotes that reflects my thoughts on this world.
All the photography except the one above (obviously) are done by myself. The home page image is created specifically for this website. It was taken with a Nikon D7000 in our family playroom which gets a lot of natural sunlight. On the table is my 2013 13 inch Macbook Pro, my Rotring Newton fountain pen, my Leuchtturm 1917 Orange dot grid notebook, and our LEGO EV3 robot.
About this Website
This is the sixth generation of my personal website. Technology moves quickly. Every year or two I update the site. For 2014, I moved the site from my custom platform to Squarespace - the first commercial platform that provides a good balance between features and ease of use.
I started this site back in 2001. Check it out! I started with hand coded HTML, then switched to Dreamweaver and my own templates until Dreamweaver gotten really blotted and overpriced. Then I moved to Django, and use different themes developed by other designers. I gave it another new look in the middle of 2012. And now squarespace.
