Welcome to my Website

Behold: for this is now Version 6.2 of my website. Light, translucent plastic, and glass.

About Me

I am an approximately 500,000,000-second-old person living in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I am currently a student at UBC's Science One program.

My interests

I have a passion for car design, engineering, and computers. By using professional software such as Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended, Autodesk 3DS Max 2009, Rhinoceros 3D 4.0, and Adobe InDesign CS4, I can create artwork and designs to some extent thanks to my self-learnt skills. In addition, I have a passion for inventing things. Currently I have many unique designs and inventions. Among those are a constant-velocity joint with no sliding elements and a cage gear that can add or subtract a tooth for application in near-continuously variable transmissions. I hope to patent these inventions sometime in the future.


I was born in Singapore, where I received a bilingual primary education in English and Mandarin Chinese. As a result, English is my first language, and I am proficient in Chinese. I came to Canada in August 2005, and studied one year of high school in the Kitsilano Secondary School MACC program. Then, I came to the UBC Transition Program in 2006 September. In June of 2008, I graduated from the UBC Transition Program and thus completed high school education. In September 2008, I began my studies in UBC as an undergraduate student. I hope to enter the UBC Engineering Physics program in second year.


After completing university, I will strive to enter a reputable graduate school in the U.S.A. I will pursue a future in automotive design or engineering, or computer sciences and graphics.

System requirements

A screen resolution of at least 1024 x 600 pixels (most modern 10" laptops and 15" desktop monitors) and a colour depth of at least 6 bits per channel (supported on most consumer level TN LCD displays) are recommended. However, the higher the resolution and the higher the colour depth, the better!
