I created the initial website design for the UC Irvine Outreach Clinics, using Photoshop that was converted into an HTML template for Drupal. The site was initially powered by a stock version of Drupal 5 with multilingual capabilities to target both Spanish and English users (with options to expand to other languages such as Vietnamese in the future). We used a lot of great photography by Denny Le, MD, now a radiology resident physician at the University of Maryland. read more→
"Resonance" reflects more of my personality. It refers to a concept in chemistry in which carbon atoms share electrons along bonds in the p orbital to increase the stability of the overall molecule. As the carbon atoms strive for harmony amongst its chemical bonds, so too do I strive for such harmony with human bonds.

P=MD, a student-run online system, links students at the University of Irvine, School of Medicine’s (UCI-SOM) distant medical campuses across Orange County and Los Angeles County. The system includes Web 2.0-based features such as discussion boards, wikis, news feeds, integrated calendaring, collaborative note sharing, and groupware. P=MD stimulates UCI medical student academic and extracurricular life. read more→
I designed a new logo, book covers, and a website for Preston Ni, a San Francisco-based professional communication coach and college instructor. Preston’s an expert at cross-cultural understanding, interpersonal effectiveness, and tipping point change. He’s taught seminars at Fortune 500 companies like Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard, Visa, and eBay.
I helped create these brief Flash animations for the new Tellme.com website to demonstrate Tellme by Text and Tellme by Voice. read more→
Upsilon Pi Epsilon is the computer science honor society at UC Berkeley. I spearheaded a brand-new redesign and reimplementation of the website, creating both the design and the development. The design was based off the group’s needs for areas customized to different levels of users: candidates, members, officers, and the general public. To make the site accessible to everyone, I adhered to XHTML and CSS standards. read more→
Ma's Restaurant was the end result of many long weeks of prototyping and database code to serve as a front end to a restaurant menu-ordering and table-reservation system. I primarily directed the site's template system, administered source code control and tools, and kept project management going, seeing it through the entire software design cycle. The website itself was crafted with a flexible two-column XHTML and CSS layout. Much of the back-end was created by Kaisen, Tingting, Nikita, Derek, and Yanting. read more→
Maintaining the Academics Center website was one of my university jobs. I oversaw the redesign of this website in 2003, creating site maps, sketching possible web designs, and then finally created the entire look of the website in HTML. Over the winter for about 50 to 60 hours, I completely redesigned their pages; it went live in January 2003, and received much acclaim from supervisors and students alike. However, the number of HTML pages has climbed past the 300 mark. read more→
I revamped the Graphics Group's website for UC Berkeley's Computer Science department. This was done completely in CSS and XHTML, hand-coded in Emacs, and I took great pains to make sure that it was W3C-validated and had a completely flexible layout for users with large monitors. It uses a very lightweight PHP templating system — not as elaborate as Smarty, but uses many include() tags so that it would provide some flexibility in the coding.

I had the great opportunity to work with Brian A. Barsky, a professor in computer graphics at UC Berkeley, on the [CS 39J Photography seminar website](http://inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/~cs39j/). At the time, this site was static, and since the servers did not support dynamic PHP content, much of the site was meticulously hand-edited. I designed this in Photoshop and Dreamweaver.
