About Me

  • I am currently a computer science grad student at The University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver.
  • I also completed the Bachelor of Computer Science (BCS) second-degree program here.
  • I lived in Tokyo for several years where I worked at United Nations University (UNU) in the media and communications group (Media Centre).
  • I almost exclusively use Linux, open source, and online software.
  • I’ve worked in a variety of industries and environments in both Canada and Japan.
  • I believe that appropriate technology can help make the world a better place – systems that improve community, communication, collaboration, knowledge management, and streamlining.
  • My curiosity leads me to explore a great variety of both concrete and abstract things. I can get wrapped up in topics related to NPO effectiveness, disaster and emergency management and response, sustainability and environment, productivity, and more.
  • I have also done a decent amount of volunteer work.
  • I am an explorer, HSP, introvert, and INFJ..
