Hi, my name is dickwyn!
I'm a proud Malaysian and Sun Devil. I received my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Arizona State University with Magna Cum Laude honors. My degree's focus was on human-computer interaction and mobile computing.
As a technology enthusiast, I enjoy exploring new technology products that come out. There's something about new and fresh tech products that excites me. In the past I did a lot of tech blogging which introduced me to a number of skills such as marketing, HTML, SEO and graphic design.
In my spare time I enjoy enjoy blogging, photography, travelling (and some plane spotting) and doing (a lot of) online shopping. Additionally, I am an advocate for sustainability, gender equality and inclusion.
I'm almost always checking my (email) inbox. So shoot me an email if you would like to chat.
