I was born in Shanghai, China. From a young age, I was infamous for mischief and crazy ideas. Who could have imagined a seven-year-old boy organizing all his classmates into a convenient noodle eating contest, and one-third of the class got a stomachache after that? Fortunately, I quickly converted my awful skills of destruction into something useful. I picked up fundamental programming skills in Java when I was in Junior high school because my father brought me a desktop as a birthday present. My initial purpose of writing in Java was relatively impure: write an executable that will automatically harvest products from my online farm in a web game. The online farming system, which enabled users to grow their plant, was popular during that time in China and auto-harvesting products gave me an advantage over my other friends online. However, it ended with me being kicked out by the web game's security system. >_<
After entering the University of Pittsburgh in the United States, I began to enjoy the sweet western rebellion in the form of the dancing mob and American fast food. I tried different things that I could never experience in China: hunting, targeting, and throwing pancakes at my roommates. I majored in Computer Science and polished my coding skills through different classes. Besides, I learned game engines like Unity3D and used graphic libraries such as SDL to create some video games.
My primary hobby is always going to be gaming. It is the fundamental reason to push me into the world of programming because I can make games with codes. Besides, I like to play tabletop wargames like Warhammer 40K and Warmachine series. Painting the miniatures for the wargames acts as the cornerstone for my art aspect. Playing a musical instrument is the last primary hobby of mine. Currently, I can play the flute and saxophone -- a great way of showing off myself in my friends' parties.
