Hey, I'm Brian Ho, and I'm

About Me

Hi, I'm Brian! I was born and raised in SoCal, and I'm currently a rising fourth-year undergrad at UC Berkeley studying Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EECS) and Economics.

On campus, I'm heavily involved with Blockchain at Berkeley and its education side, helping lead a course on Blockchain Fundamentals which covers a variety of topics in the cryptocurrency and the wider blockchain space (go check it out!). Some of the things I'm particularly interested in include cybersecurity (particularly smart contract security), cryptoeconomics & protocol design, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs aka CryptoKitties). I also lead the Web Team at Innovative Design where I teach about UI/UX design principles and how to apply it to web development!

This summer, I'm working at Dapper Labs (the quirky team that brought you CryptoKitties, Cheeze Wizards, and Dapper Wallet) to use the power of play to bring blockchain-based experiences to the next wave of users and adopters. I'm currently working on a top secret blockchain project that you'll hear more about in the coming months (hint: scalability)!

The past summer, I worked at ConsenSys with the Bounties Network team, improving the way we collaborate and creating a standard for outsourcing tasks online. I've also helped out as an Expert-in-Residence for Udacity's Blockchain Developer Nanodegree program, answering questions and offering students guidance about working in the blockchain space!

While I'm not busy coding away on my computer, you might find me napping (99% of the time), (still) playing Pokemon Go, drooling over food/cooking videos (Buzzfeed/Tasty videos anyone?), or clicking "Going" to random events on Facebook.
