About Me

[UPDATE] As of 2018, Jason is pursuing a Master's in Computer Science at Georgia Tech, specializing in statistical Machine Learning and Computer Vision research under Professor Polo Chau of College of Interactive Computing.

Hi! I recently earned a dual degree in Computer Science & Business Administration at the University of Southern California. My budding interest in explorational technologies and open-ended research started in elementary school when I got homebrew MSN to run on NDS. In my teenage years, I've tinkered with custom Android firmware, jailbroke iOS devices, cracked WEP encryption, and resurrected a formatted USB drive.

A maker today, I believe the best way to improve our world is to add value by innovation and global leadership. Having launched two startups, attended 30 hackathons & 10 tech conferences, and worked from large corporations like Apple to a fledging startup, I see the key to success in self-motivation and unwavering grit.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking outdoors, exploring new places, reading inspirational bios/stories and binge on history. Immersing myself in HackerNews and a spectrum of tech feeds daily is also my cup of tea.
