Hello! I'm Fabian 👋
I'm a Full Stack Software Engineer with focus on front-end development from Hong Kong. I graduated from HKUST majored in Computer Science.
Outside of work, I'm a gamer to the core. I tend to play story-based adventurous action games. GTA and God of War series are my favourites. I'm also into tactical competitive first-person shooters like Rainbow Six Siege.
Apart from games, I also like reading particularly non-fictions, especially those that focus on psychology and philosophy. I play music mainly guitar and drums. Basketball and longboarding are also what I love to do.

Worked with SleekFlow as freelance for their website. I ended joining their energetic and ambitious team as a frontend dev.
Joined 8 Securities / SoFi HK
My second Dev job. This is where I trained up my back-end skills with the help of my experienced colleagues. I realized I picked the right career path.
Joined Altitude Labs
My first full-time job as a Software Engineer. I spent a year there solidifying my dev skills. And I made some good friends there.
I don't have an exciting school life or the best grades but I'm blessed to have finished my degree.
Took a Semester Off
I took a year off because of the internship. I wanted some time outside of study. It was a turning point of my life. I reestablished myself realizing my potential in front-end development.
I worked as a developer / designer role in the government sector. I had fun continuing my creative endeavour as well as doing simple web development.
Built My First Website
It was a single page static website built with Bootstrap. I grinded my way learning the basics of HTML, CSS and very little JS. It was a preparation project to get ready for my internship. It was worthwhile to realize I can build something.
Became the Executive Member of the Rotaract Club of HKUST 15-16
It was the best time I had in University. I was part of group and met different people along the way. It was also a time where I learnt how to do creative designs as the Promotion and Publication personnel.
Started Majoring in Computer Science
CS was my 3rd choice below Civil and Mechanical Engineering. And I never learnt anything about programming prior to college. Looking back, I'm glad that I got in which made me who I am today and have a flexible career.
Started at HKUST
I knew my direction was toward Engineering in High School. I fortunately did well enough to get into one of the best Engineering School in Asia.
Graduated High School
I studied Physics and Statistics. I did Chemistry for a year as well but it was just too boring to go any further.
