More about me

I'm an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto studying mathematics, physics, and computer science. In the future, I see myself working as a mathematical physicist with a side hustle as a world-famous musician.

I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, and went to the same high school as Bryan Adams before coming to Toronto. I know English, Mandarin Chinese, and trace amounts of French and German. My last name is pronounced "chiew", almost like the "choo" in "achoo" or the "chew" in "Chewbacca". I'm an avid fountain pen enthusiast and snowboarder. Oh, and I co-founded a jazz meme page.

Above all, I love music. I started playing piano at the age of seven and trumpet at the age of ten. I also occasionally sing - sometimes with others, but usually in the car, to myself. I've played with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, toured the Netherlands and Germany with my high school concert band and choir, and witnessed Jens Lindemann perform at the Canadian Rocky Mountain Festival. I started off playing classical music, but now I mostly play jazz. Send me music, because I'll listen to just about everything - even country music (but only once).
