About me

Introduction

Full Stack Engineer

I can develop websites using both the LAMP (ModiShow ) and MEAN (PolliGrid ) stacks. I am constantly working to improve my current skills as well as learning new ones.

Responsive Design

I can create full responsive web designs. Examples of my work are PolliGrid, Chatting Room , To Do Task and this site.

Good communicator

During my college years, I founded the Japanese American Student Union, which helped me learn how to effectively communicate with others. Additionally, I won 5th Place and the Fan Favorite award at GW's Pitch George elevator pitch competition.

My name is Zhengdian Zhan, but people call me "Masa." I am currently working for a YC funded startup as a software engineer.

I earned my master's degree in information systems technology from George Washington University, and I have been teaching myself a variety of technologies. I have a strong interest in web & software development.

If you are interested in learning more, setting up an interview, or anything else, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you
