About Me

Hey, I’m Roland. I'm studying CS + Business at USC. Outside school, I'm avid builder, creating things like Imprint and MeetPass.  I previously worked at Microsoft and Apple.

I'm passionate about maximizing impact through entrepreneurship. I believe that building new things is the most powerful catalyst for change, and I've made it a goal of mine to help others explore entrepreneurship. I work on Spark Accelerator, a student-run startup accelerator at USC to get projects from the MVP stage to their first round of seed funding. Through HackSC, I'm building a place for builders to explore new ideas.

Recently, I've found myself learning more about the financial system, UX design, and psychology. A lot of my learnings come straight from my bookshelf.

I grew up in Saratoga, CA. In my free time, I'm playing basketball, performing magic to friends and family, practicing photography, and learning to play the guitar. When I have interesting thoughts, I like to share them in writing on my blog.
