Hi! This is Lisa. I was born and raised in Qingdao, China, and I currently live in the Bay Area, California. Now I work as a Software Engineer at Apple. I received my Master’s degree in Information Systems Management from Carnegie Mellon University.

I started writing this blog back to 2013. This blog was initially set up using Wordpress. I later moved this blog to Octopress and Jekyll.

Here’re some articles about the history of this blog:

I used to love reading novels and writing. My favorite writers are Hermann Hesse and Haruki Murakami. Now I do not read novels and write as often as I used to.

I’ve lived in many different places in the past. Here are some of the cities I have lived (in reverse chronological order): Mountain View, San Jose, Pittsburgh, Medellín, Adelaide, Kaohsiung, Berlin, Beijing, Qingdao.

I also love travelling. Here are the other places I have travelled to which I liked a lot: Melbourne, Brisbane, Bogotá, Taipei.

The place I really want to go now is Vancouver.

In this blog, there are many articles about travelling as well as my personal experiences in different places.
