About Me

Hi, my name is Chris Kao. I grew up in Huntington Beach, CA, spent 5 years in Philadelphia for my undergraduate and master's degrees at the University of Pennsylvania, then moved back west to be in Silicon Valley. Currently, I work as a software engineer at WePay in Redwood City, CA.

According to various personality and traits tests I have completed, I am a very curious person - one study ranked me at a 99 out of 100 in curiosity. I enjoy devouring information from the web, and I also enjoy sharing back with the community - hence I created my blog. Here you will find an assortment of information; I imagine most of the posts will be about software engineering problems I am solving and others will be based on my hobbies, such as photography.

I'm always looking to expand my network in all disciplines, so feel free to connect with me.
