I love building technology that can cultivate a generation of creators. I founded Endless, an independent collection of companies and initiatives focused on unlocking the untapped potential in youth.

Endless’ initial focus was to make computing universally accessible for everyone. We started by building software to solve internet connectivity for kids in the developing world. Endless OS, our flagship product, is a fully functional operating system that works on any form of internet connection.
Today, Endless is taking this a step further to empower a generation of kids, in the US and elsewhere, to shape their technology rather than being shaped by it. Endless is doing this through three initiatives: Hack harnesses Endless OS to embed coding education into the heart of an operating system. The Third Terminal is a collection of coding-based games that focus on inspire delight. Finally, The Endless Mission is a sandbox-style Steam game that takes players on a journey to a world where nothing is as it seems and the power to reshape the game itself sits at the tips of their fingers. All of this, to shape your games and, through it, your world.

I discovered my passion for building organizations of consequence when I founded the China Care Foundation at the age of 16 to offer orphaned children a brighter future. China Care has since raised over $14 million to provide surgeries, foster placements and adoptions for thousands of special needs children, as well as spawning dozens of campus clubs. For this work, I've been honored as one of Oprah Winfrey’s “People Changing the Lives of Children Around the World”, as one of Teen People’s “20 Teens Who Will Change the World,” and the youngest recipient of the Fulbright Award. All of this was set in motion by living in China with a family at the age of 11. That year in China changed my life more than anything, setting me on the course that has landed me here today.

I am a graduate of Harvard College (‘06) and Stanford Business School (‘12).
