my name is alan.

I'm a software engineer and UI/UX designer based in California. I love innovation, food, and good news.

I'm passionate about creating beautiful things that connect people. Software is my medium of choice.

Like an origami artist, I get to fold awesome things with just ones and zeros. I have special expertise in human-computer interaction, cognitive science, mobile device development, and cross-cultural computer-mediated communication.

I enjoy long walks on the beach. I also like eating, traveling, beatboxing, studying languages, and jamming.
