VR Developer, Researcher, Hacker, Archer

Hi, I'm Alvin! As a graduating 4th year at UCLA, I'm interested in software development for technologies related to virtual and augmented realities (VR/AR).

5 years ago, I received my pre-order of the Oculus Rift DK1. Since then, my passion for VR/AR has only grown, motivating me to pursue all sorts of projects in these fields.

During my time at UCLA, I was a programmer and research assistant for two psychology labs, where I investigated neurological markers of human intelligence, observed the effects of learning in VR, and used VR to study the visual illusions that occur with tilted rooms.

I'm currently starting a VR production company that creates highly interactive story-driven VR games, as well as immersive experiences for trade shows, commercials, training programs. Our mission is to use VR as a medium to tell immersive stories that can change the way people view the world.

I also mentor at and participate in hackathons, where my teams and I have built really cool projects, like a mind-controlled car, full-body VR, AR search, heart rate-based FPS, and more!

In my free time, I shoot arrows, teach kids how to code, and play video games.
