About

Bio

I’m always passionate about solving problems with technology. As a self-taught full-stack engineer with 7 years of commercial experience, I’m privileged to be able to turn sparks of inspiration into real products that people love to use.

I grew up in China and Singapore but now I live in Melbourne, Australia. Over the past four and half years, I’ve been working at my startup CoinJar to shape the future of finance and payments.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree (major in Finance) in 2015, and earned my CFA® charter in 2017. Combined with my experience in technology, it should be pretty obvious that FinTech is very much “my thing”.

When I’m not working on hard problems, I’m a travel enthusiast who has a seven-figure frequent flyer points balance. I’ve been to at least 87 cities around the world and travelled more than 500,000 kms since I could count.

I can’t spare a moment not studying, so now I’m a Master of Science (Computer Science) student at The University of Melbourne.
