Brief Biographical Sketch:

I was born in the US, but my childhood was spent in China. During my childhood, I would walk down the street to a toy store and buy DIY RC car set. I would build them and race my custom car against the neighboring kids. Those early obsessions shaped who I am today. I learned to do what you love, and I love making.
