Hi, I'm Vu.

No matter how old I get, I still see myself as a kid from Texas — wide-eyed, full of gumption, and set on changing the world through creativity.

I'm a serial entrepreneur, designer, engineer, and culturalist influenced by street culture, fine art, southern hip hop, and my mama’s cooking.

I have a passion for visual media, storytelling, and leveraging technology to empower other indie creators, makers, and hackers like me.

If you're in it to make a difference, and working on something interesting, or thinking about it, let’s link up.

I’m always down to collaborate.
