About Me

Philomath and maker. I enjoy falling down the rabbit holes, I learn best hands-on, and I obtain a great amount of joy from building things that explore an area’s concept or pushes their boundaries.

Bio

I grew up in Shanghai and moved to the U.S. when I was in highschool. During my undergrad studying New Media Interactive Development at RIT, I got to learn about FOSS and free culture movements through a unique program. After graduation, I worked at Helios Interactive (acquired by Freeman) in SF, building AR/VR installations, and loved going to Noisebridge hackerspace. I moved back to Shanghai in 2018 and worked as a freelancer out of Xinchejian, exploring multiple directions - software consulting, new media art, and teaching. After running into 80000hours, my attention shifted toward helping understand and reduce AI Risk.

I’m part of Merveilles, a solarpunk community of creators who like longtermism, transhumanism, decentralization, civic empowerment, and dressing in all black.
