Born and raised in the PY; that's Philippines if you didn't know.  Don't ask me why we don't say PH ๐Ÿคท. My fam and I flew to not-as-humid California โ˜€๏ธ 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 ๐Ÿ˜, so I partied hard at Soda Hall during college where I coded and taught ๐Ÿค“. A fruit company called Apple ๐ŸŽ hired me straight out of Cal, where I spent two years making great apps I probably can't tell you about ๐Ÿ˜ถ. Now, I'm at Coursera, where I help anyone get a world-class education, anywhere on their mobile phone ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ“š.

Whenever I'm not sitting in a dark room and coding, I like to shoot and frame things like people, animals, and buildings ๐Ÿ“ท. Shuffling ๐ŸŽง ๐ŸŽถ and boxing ๐ŸฅŠ are my two favorite types of dances. I am a wannabe jet-setter ๐Ÿ›ซ 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 ๐Ÿ“ฑ, health โš•๏ธ, education ๐ŸŽ’, or maybe you're still confused by the name of my blog, shoot me an email! โœ‰๏ธ
