Purpose


I’m Hao. I grew up in Los Angeles California and have lived there for most of my life. 

I started this blog for many reasons. The dream of compensation for my hobbies and adventures. A personal blog of what I’m up to. A simple list of recommendations for other hobbyist and travelers.

I’m a curious person who likes to dab my hands into everything that intrigues me. From curiosity is my will to learn. In the past few years, I’ve worked on cars, motorcycles. I’ve gotten into leather working, wood working and then into MIG welding. I flew drones, recorded action shots and produced silly short videos. All without any prior experience.

My background is in information technology. Growing up, computers always intrigued me. I built my first computer when I was around 11 years old with the help of my cousin. Fast forward over two decades to present time where I am a seasoned system admin. Or, rather, was a system admin. And here we are.
