Heron has always been working on building something people want.
His firm belief was first established in high school. Then he continued his journey at National Chiao Tung University and Carnegie Mellon University, where he majored in both Computer Science and Information Technology. Furthermore, he joined Google as an intern to build things with higher impact.
As he cares about constructing connections among people and fulfilling user needs, he devoted himself to developing prototypes of startup ideas, new applications or websites, study notes, books, and blogs in the past few years.
