Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a California boy; I was born in Palo Alto, and I grew up in Cupertino a block away from the old Apple headquarters. I was raised surrounded by technology, but developed a passion for the humanities as well.

I love linguistics, and I have created 2 languages so far! I speak English, Mandarin, and French, and I'm currently learning German as well. Other than linguistics and CS, my interests include music, mathematics, physics, and literature. In my spare time, I like to play music, write things, and read.
