Kaung in his tiny home thinking about boba tea

Yello! My name is Kaung,
pronounced like King Kong.

Full-stack developer building software through the lens of science, data, and aesthetics. Driven by creating solutions for a dynamic balance of form and function. Constantly striving for a “no-effort” look with maximum effort.
Or as my friend puts it...
Full-stack developer suffering from impostor syndrome who builds sites through the lens of over-thinking. Driven by OCD. Occasionally striving for well-thought through look, but also sometimes just wanting to do things that aren't viewed as pretentious in his mind.
My background is in Biochemistry and Studio Art, the former I pursued as a pre-med student. I love tech, gadgets, and a good bagel, egg, and cheese. I am obsessed with self-improvement, minimalism, and mechanical keyboards -- all very costly things I can't afford. In my free time, you can find me putting games in my wishlist but not actually playing them. As I realize that this bio has gotten far too similar to a dating profile, here's an article I wrote that'll tell you more about myself better than I can.
