I'm a software engineer at a financial technology company called Enova International, located in Chicago, Illinois.

I'm also a (currently on hiatus) computer science graduate student. I love to travel, play hockey and soccer, and I have a complicated relationship with China, having lived in her embrace for nearly two years.
