I've been developing digital painting technology for over 10 years. During my time at HKUST, I developed computational models for paint brushes and ink/watercolor, dubbed MoXi, which I'm best known for:
In 2005, I was approached by Adobe and eventually MoXi was licensed to them in 2006 and I also went to US for technology transfer in Adobe's Minnesota office. Read my Adobe story.
I later moved to the Startup Business Group and helped transiting Project Gustav into a product there. The product was first released at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) of New York as Microsoft Digital Art. It later became Fresh Paint, which Microsoft has used to promote its new flagship product Windows 8.
I resigned from Microsoft in 2011 and returned to Asia.
I was born left-handed but trained to use my right hand to write. I am a Software Engineer/Researcher by profession, but deep down inside I'm more a visual artist.
