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 lead a design organization. Online, I write and create experiences. Let's talk?
If you enjoy my writing, experiments, or creations, I have a Tinyletter I send out every few months!

When you watch the world, it watches you back. Log online into a stream of exposed security cameras and CCTV feeds...
I founded Developh in 2016, now we're nurturing student founders in Southeast Asia. We're advising student-centric incubation & tech education, running an accelerator, and an online community. Say hi—email@example.com.
Founded Yale's design organization (a chapter of UXSociety founded in Manila) where we work with 20+ designers, teaching design and serving clients.
Building experimental and emerging tech across games, the peer-to-peer web, and exploring code and the web as an art form.
