In order of descending importance, I am a Christian, a husband, and an engineer.
Before anything other identity that I could take on, I am first and foremost a Christian: a follower and slave of Christ (1 Peter 1:18-19, Galatians 2:20). By nature full of sin (Psalm 14:3, Romans 3:23, James 2:10) and therefore unfit to be in the presence of a pure, holy, and sinless God, I along with all humanity am condemned to eternal death after physical death (Romans 6:23).
However, praise God not only for His perfect justice, but also for His perfect love (1 John 4:8)! In the ultimate display of love toward me that I in no way deserve, He sent Christ Jesus, fully God and fully man (John 1:1, 1:14, 10:30), to the cross to pay the price for my sins that I could never pay (1 John 4:10), then rose again three days later to conquer death so that all who believe may have eternal life (John 17:3, Mark 1:15, Acts 16:31).
May no one ever make the mistake in believing that I call myself a Christian out of good works or any sort of moral superiority, but only out of the grace of God freely shown to me through Christ's atoning death (Acts 4:12).
I'm a member of Evangel Bible Church of Berkeley, where I seek to be in obedience to Scripture in serving and loving other believers.
My wife Diana and I have been married for roughly 1 year. Many daughters have done nobly, but Diana excels them all.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at University of California, Berkeley. I like using technology to make people's lives easier, more organized, and more efficient.
After finishing my junior year at Berkeley, I started working full-time as a software engineer in the Bay Area. See my work history.
When not programming, I read (favorite books include Acts, Proverbs, 1 Peter, A Gospel Primer for Christians, Disciplines of a Godly Man, Living the Cross Centered Life, and favorite blogs include Al Mohler, PyroManiacs, and Tim Challies), eat Chipotle, go snowboarding, and make piano covers of Chinese popular music.
