Vince MingPu Shao Profile Picture

Based in New York, I've been part of the NYU ITP family and interned at Line Break Studio as Web and iOS Engineer in this vibrant city.

My Machine Learning + React.js project has recently been featured in Google Creative Lab's Teachable Machine project. The story of my transition from graphic designer to front-end developer has 100k views.

I'm welcome to all kinds of opportunities, collaborations or conversations. Contact me, or let me tell you more about my story, skills and experience.

story

Coming from Taiwan, I'm born with the passion for visual design, or communicating important ideas. Motivated by this passion, I've tried to tell stories as a professional editor, photographer and graphic designer. And I learned all of the knowledge and skills from books and the internet.

I learn new things fast and accurate because I know skills transferring. Writing taught me to structure; I spot the problem with the eyes of a photographer, and I solve problems like a designer. These knowledge make me a good web developer capable of building a dynamic and robust app aligned with design changes.

Programming is fun and magical. I’m addicted to building big and practical projects, but also enjoying anything fun and trivial. Driven by the passion to explore more of human-computer-interaction possibilities, I arrived in New York.

New York is very different from my home. The incredible energies and talents are everywhere, and I’ve become part of them in my unique way. Right now, with four years of programming experience, I'm looking for an exciting new opportunity as a developer or engineer here.

So, to be continued.
