Durham is at the epicenter of the RTP (Research Triangle Park), the medical and technical hub of North Carolina. Duke is also home of the Fuqua program, the masters program for Duke University.
Lenovo is located in nearby Morrisville, NC, not far from the Raleigh, Durham Chapell-Hill triangle area. Lenovo is directly across the street from the Oracle campus.
After returning to the United States from China, my involvement with Xiazao—an educational start up founded by a few of my associates in Shenzhen—went from general consultant to an official role of Senior Web Developer. Xiaozao's sphere of activity was in Durham, as many of its founding members were students at Fuqua, Duke University's business school.
After completing my role as Senior Web Developer for Xiaozao, I accepted a short term position at Lenovo as a UX Designer. My experience not only in web web development, but my experience in graphic design, typography and other designing for international brands.
My time as a Senior Web developer at Xiaozao saw my cooperation with a full Duke Fuqua graduate team and leading web development of the site by collaborating with different founders from different backgrounds. I helped see the original team through two branding campaigns and one name change.
During the end of my contract with Lenovo, I was promoted to UI lead for the global accessories department and worked on a percentage based pre-Bootstrap, pre-Flexbox solution that I created for layouts that will accomodate multiple languages at multiple type sizes and styles.
