About Me

Hey there, I'm James Ma. I graduated from Purdue University in Computer Science (with a concentration in Software Engineering and a minor in Psychology). I'm a Mac-loving, Android-embracing, UX/UI-appreciating kind of guy.

You can find me on Twitter, Linkedin and GitHub. You can download my resume or check out what I've been up to below.

This website's design is inspired by the Svbtle network by Dustin Curtis.
