Howdy I'm Pixel!

I am a multimedia artist and engineer. I am currently superimposed between Philadelphia and New York City. You may know me by a variety of names but I have no preference, as long as I know it's me. I am a member of the Chinese (Hokkien, Yi) and Burmese Diaspora who grew up in North Jersey.

I am a user. I am an occassional Yelp Elite Reviewer, Open Voice contributor, Product Hunter, and copywriter/copyeditor. I'm also a LEED Green Associate. I specialize in geothermal and distributed solar energy systems.

I was born on Lunar New Year, the tail end of the year of the dragon. My family likes to refer to me as the smallest dragon because of this. I'm also the youngest of my siblings. I think small is good and beautiful.

Due to my visual/audtiory processing, you will often find me wearing earplugs and with captions on. I am a big advocate for #a11y. I listen to a variety of music from funk to punk caberet math rock to progressive post-hardcore to city pop. I consider music to be a very important part of my life and would be happy to make you a playlist if you'd like. I collect button pins, plushies, and baseball caps. My favorite color is red. I really like to eat chocolate.
