Key Accomplishments

After graduating with a BA in East Asian Studies, I had no idea what job I wanted--I just knew I wanted to live in California. So I moved here and went to different companies handing out my resume. Eventually, I got a job at Google in advertising sales. I did that for a year, while also involved in a product team, after which I transferred to the eLearning team.

I did everything from create eLearning programs, consult internally to help others make awesome eLearning programs, build global user-to-user learning programs, create learning media studios all over the world, experiments to measure the ROI for education, and much more.

At the same time, I started my own company to do a Facebook game, and then did consulting for UC Berkeley's online initiative.

For my work, I've gotten the Google Platinum Exceptional Contribution award, been named South by Southwest 2012 Scholar, E3 Scholar, and have received the Interactive Media Awards - Gold, Hermes Creative Awards, and a couple others.

I'm attended Carnegie Mellon's Entertainment Technology program to learn how to make better entertaining experiences, worked at Amazon, and am now back to doing my own projects.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

-Creative product and marketing ideas
-Communication skills (awesome at presentations and writing)
-Skills in eLearning + learning design
-Decent network of artists, programmers, advertising consultants, rich folk :)
