About Mu


Mu is an engineer who loves building, breaking, and fixing things. He built this site in an attempt to impress the AdCom at MIT Sloan (it didn't work). After graduating from UC Berkeley with a degree in Computer Science, he fulfilled his lifelong dream of building exciting enterprise software solutions at Model N. Sick of working on high-profile everyday products, Mu decided to later join Disney to work on totally obscure products, such as disney.com and Star Wars. These days, his day job is working as a software engineer at Airbnb , but by night he's a second-year MBA student at his alma mater, Berkeley's Haas School of Business.

His claim to fame is that he once starred in a McDonald's commercial in China and also had his car's vanity plate featured on the front page of starwars.com. In 2006, the esteemed World Cube Association ranked him as the 39th fastest Rubik's cube solver in the world, a spot he occupied for nearly a full week before he decided to quit while he was still behind. He also once ran "sudo rm -rf * .jpg" (note the all-important space between the * and .jpg) in his home directory and borked everything.
