Software developer, travel enthusiasts and professional dreamer.

I’m Gan, a software developer, graphic designer and entrepreneur based in Los Angeles and New York City. I enjoy developing aesthetic and useful technologies for fun and geeky endeavors. I am currently focused in the space of AI and AR. It's also a life goal of mine to help bring to life and witness the birth of General Artificial Intelligence in my lifetime.

I love traveling internationally. It's a magical feeling to be on the road, hopping between tourist attractions and destinations, touring new cities and places, people-watching while sitting in front of a coffee shop window near a busy street. It creates wonderful memories, giving each year something to look back on and remember. It also brings something exciting to look forward to each year. Even the process of making travel plans is exciting, despite the headache it takes to prep for visas and itineraries. I put a pin on the map for each place I have visited, and I print all my travel photos out in a photo album. It's a rewarding experience to see maps getting fuller and fuller with little travel pins, and the photo albums getting filled up. It's my life's journeys and experiences recorded in snapshots.

I also enjoy learning new things and skills. It keeps me intellectually stimulated and engaged. The feeling of mastering and learning something new is gratifying, and it helps grow my passion and diversify my hobbies. I like adventures as well. I am an Advanced PADI-certified scuba diver, and I am working towards becoming a Scuba Master. It gives me the opportunity to explore amazingly unique places under the water. I am also studying to become a recreational pilot, as well as getting licensed for skydiving. This gives me the freedom to explore the sky, with the ability to experience extreme thrills and fun. I used to ski, but now I have started learning snowboarding. I still fall a lot, but with more lessons and practice, I look forward to the days where I can comfortably enjoy and traverse the beautiful snowy mountains.
