About Me

Hello, my name is Christopher J. Chan. I was born in USA, grew up in Hong Kong, and further studied in Canada. I'm a diverse individual who's passionate about new technology and technological advancements, and am always using and testing out the latest toys and gadgets. I decided to go into Web Development as my entry into tech from a non-technical background. I graduated with a degree in Economics, Sociology and Biopsychology, and after a couple tries at Private Banking, I realized that although lucrative, it didn't ignite any passion within me. When I found out about the Immersive Bootcamp programs, I jumped right into it and am excited to finally enter a tech related role. I also have a wide variety of hobbies, from photography to bowling, badminton and many more. I enjoy the learning process and strive to excel and be proficient in every new sport, hobby or skill, and have made achievements in many of them, most prominently in bowling, where I placed 2nd in U18 Hong Kong and have once been featured in the local news. I'm an energetic person who is easy to get along with. I also like UX/UI design and have some experience with Photoshop as I used to do Photography, so I'd be happy to work on UX/UI with a designer. I am also an avid researcher and knowledge seeker. I love to do my research and am proud of my extensive knowledge. If you hire me, I will bring my technical skills, knowledge, and new ideas to your company, along with a great team working personality and a willingness to try and learn anything!
