Hey~ Nice to meet you~
I'm Max Chen <email@example.com>, an engineer, backpacker, photographer, web programmer, and blogger.
I have an M.S in Industrial System Engineering from UW-Madison, and I've worked at ASUSTek Inc., PEGATRON corp., and now Hankscraft Inc.. In the past, I did research in the UW-Madison Naturalistic Decision Making and Simulation Lab with Dr. Douglas Wiegmann , and at the Waisman Center. My research interests were focused on User Experience, Aviation Safety and Patient Safety.
I am a professional in project management and quality engineering, and I enjoy working on "complex problem" projects with hard to identify root causes or projects involving with cross-functional teams. I make a living by utilizing my knowledge and experience in both the quality and manufacturing fields. I am also a certified six sigma black belt of the American Society for Quality.
I was born in Taipei, Taiwan, and I have lived in Prague, Czech for 2 years, Shanghai, China for 3 years, and I now live in Madison, Wisconsin. Traveling and seeing the world is what brings excitement to me in life. While traveling I found a passion for photography. Taking photos and sharing what I have seen has become my treasure. In 2003 I launched a blog to present my photography.
In my free time, I like to do web programming. After not finding a photo album service I liked, I decided to code on for myself, it is called Max Chen Photo Database. It was just a start, my other web application could be found here(mandarin). In addition, my latest web project isPlace.Report which utilized Google Maps API and Facebook Graph API, a data-mining informative service.
In mid 2015, I started a new adventure with Ting-Li Lin. We set up Snowforest, a company specialzing in architecture photography and beyond. Snowforest's mission is to deliver artful images and to ensure every customer is satisfied. Snowforest is a new challenge and a new chance to us, and I devote myself in it and like to picture a wonderful future with it.
In my leisure time, I enjoy swimming, running, reading, watching movies, and playing games. I am not good at writing, but I will try my best to record thoughts, studies, and stories in here. I would like to share my life experiences with my friends and future generations. Someday, we will become someones' memory, and here is the best place to remember me.
Below is a list of social medias I am using. Let's exchange our thoughts via:
