After growing up with dead zones in Hawaii, Tiger wants to make apps that work offline and load fast. Today, he programs web apps and web browsers while studying at the University of British Columbia. Tiger is an enthusiastic member of the World Wide Web Consortium working on new standards for the web and offline websites. He has previously worked on Microsoft Edge, Firefox for Android, Google Chrome, and tooling for software developers.

Tiger has many hobbies in the creative realm, such as gaming, writing, video production, and audio editing. He creates projects combining software with old devices in unique ways. He has turned old phones into an interactive art piece and created a laundry machine with cardboard. In his spare time, Tiger searches for geocaches with his partner.
