I love technology. And when used for good, it can be used to create interesting, useful, and wonderful things. My goal in the past, now and in the future is to contribute to the building of systems or applications that can achieve all of the above. Technology can help us connect with people, make us more efficient, keep in touch with our loved ones, discover new ideas or concepts, and simplify our lives, all of which make us happier humans. In the end, when everything we do is boiled down to its most raw form, we realize that happiness should rule all above. For me, that happiness comes from pursuing what I enjoy, and that is technology. And as it is something that I am passionate about, it is the successes, whether small or large, that make me happy. I also love music, whisk(e)y, and food.
