Hey, I'm Chia. I'm a CS & Art student at Yale by way of Manila. I design and code radical initiatives & products for good.
I'm a technologist & designer. At Developh, I accelerate and invest in youth-led innovation across Southeast Asia. On campus, I do creative research at the CCAM, advise student startups, and design as UX Society's President. Recently, I spoke at GHC Conf in Australia. Online, I create games, experiences, and write stories. Let's talk?
If you enjoy my writing, experiments, or creations, I have a Tinyletter I sent out every few months!

Nurturing engineering and design leaders with empathy & impact.
