About Me

/Who Am I

author-pic

Hello I am Kaichen from Michigan State University! I am a Junior this year and major in Computer Science in College of Engineering. I like programming and designing games, both are hard to work but fun and inspiring! The career goal for me is to be a game designer or a software engineer, sitting in front of the computer and creating something sounds awesome for me! Although sometimes it is hard, tiring and time consuming, but once completed that's be best feeling ever!

My life is not all about the coding 24/7(if so I will be in the emergency room at hospital), I like to work out, do some bike riding, and playing some video games when I am free. Call of Duty is my favorite and I play it a lot with my friends, feel free to send me email with your Steam ID if you want to play together:)

Also I'm a BIG sports fan! Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks are my favorite teams in NFL, and the Dallas Mavs is the team I always supported in NBA. Most importantly, it's awesome to be a spartan at MSU and GO GREEN GO WHITE!!
