Born and raised in the PY; that's Philippines if you didn't know.  Don't ask me why we don't say PH 🀷. My fam and I flew to not-as-humid California β˜€οΈ after all my baby teeth had fallen out at 10. We've been living it up near Sacramento ever since, where we freeze during winter and melt during summer. The admissions staff at Berkeley were bold enough to let me in 😝, so I partied hard at Soda Hall during college where I coded and taught πŸ€“. A fruit company called Apple 🍎 hired me straight out of Cal, where I spent two years making great apps I probably can't tell you about 😢. Now, I'm at Coursera, where I help anyone get a world-class education, anywhere on their mobile phone πŸŒŽπŸ“š.

Whenever I'm not sitting in a dark room and coding, I like to shoot and frame things like people, animals, and buildings πŸ“·. Shuffling 🎧 🎢 and boxing πŸ₯Š are my two favorite types of dances. I am a wannabe jet-setter πŸ›« and I love meeting new people like you, unless I already know you. In that case you should stop reading this and we should hangout. If you're interested in geeking out about Swift, iOS πŸ“±, health βš•οΈ, education πŸŽ’, or maybe you're still confused by the name of my blog, shoot me an email! βœ‰οΈ
