Get To Know Xing


Hello, I am Xing, a writer and an engineer based in San Francisco.

I was born in Hong Kong at a refugee camp. I grew up in a small farm town in Southern Vietnam where there was not electricity when I was a kid.

Recently, I was at Amazon, in Sunnyvale, USA. I worked as Software Engineer, built Machine Learning infrastructure. Before that, I was at Creatory, a startup based in Vietnam where I worked on bring in-house A.I. research to commercial production.

I graduated from UC Berkeley with a B.A. in Data Science, domain emphasis in Computer Science. At the school, I assisted in the Data Structure and Algorithm Lab which sparked my love for technology.

I am living in San Francisco where I took part in making Free City College, free tuition at CCSF for San Francisco residents come to live. When I am not busy working with computers while eating junk food with chopsticks, I enjoy reading, writing, and traveling. I write about education, culture, and technology. Please check out my Blog and Substack for more of my writing.
