about-img

I develop and design cool things.

I’ve always introduced myself as a developer, designer, and lover of tech. I am those things, but also much more. I’m more than a limited character count and a filtered photo to be found in the void of social media.

I’m a digital creator, an artist, a problem solver, a creative, a designer, an illustrator, a presentation guru, a storyteller, a listener, a photographer, a teacher, and a lifetime student. I’m an environmentalist. A mental health advocate. I support equal rights and income equality. I believe in reducing consumerism, globalization, and our carbon footprint. I’m a Texan with anti-Texas views. I believe in living in the present moment.

I am Taiwanese/Italian and proud of my ethnicity. Taiwan 🇹🇼 is my second home.

I have a passion for traveling and seeing all parts of the world. I like watching basketball and combat sports. I love food, you can always find me at restaurants around town. I like trying new things but I’m risk averse.

There’s still more to me than these things. Contact me to know more.

Anthony has excelled in his first year with State Farm, particularly with the competency expectations I have of a new employee and developer. I appreciate his ability to work with new developers on the team, his ability to dig in and learn, experiment, and try his best at new technical challenges. He was able to show his early leadership of the dev group and really surprised our program partners with his thoroughness and attention to detail.

Anthony has proven that through hard work and team work, he can accomplish tasks, learn quickly, and communicate effectively.
