About

I'm a designer-developer focusing on interactive web experiences. I love using experimental web technologies and playful fonts to make sites. I mainly make things with Next.js, Tailwind, AWS, Fauna, and other serverless and web technologies. On the side, I work in the intersection of computer science and education and help our youth learn and our teachers teach.

Speaking

2022
San Francisco, California

In this workshop, we designed a personal website with Figma. This was intended for beginners and everybody created a design that taught important tools like the shape tool, position tools, and flex-box utilities.

2022
San Francisco, California

In this workshop, we created a personal website with Next.js and Tailwind. This workshop was intended for coders who knew basic HTML and wanted to learn Next.js, but a lot of attendees were beginners so this lasted ~2hrs because we had to start with the basics. Two hackathon teams remixed this workshop to make their project. Co-taught with Jaden Yu.

2021
Los Angeles, California

Doing workshops remotely on Zoom is extremely difficult. There was no final project in this workshop and instead was targeted at teaching CSS Flexbox and Grid to attendees who were learning web design and wanted to integrate these technologies into their site. Although a lot of (virtual) bottlenecks, attendees learned how to make a responsive website using Tailwind CSS.

2021
San Antonio, Texas

I talked about how git works and how beginners can use it. This was for kids in middle school and they finished the workshop with a git repository with pushed code. Linked are the slides made on MDX.

Exhibitions

ESC Region 20, San Antonio, Texas

Designed and created activities for the AutoAuto station and taught kids Python and Machine Learning with RC cars. Lead a group of 5 volunteers from a data science bootcamp (CodeUp) to help me engage kids that visited our station.
