developer & designer
Listen to some chill beats?
My name is Wendy Li and I was born and raised in San Francisco, California. I started my college career studying fine art and decided that I wanted to do something more impactful with my creative abilities and time in University. I decided to change my major to Computer Science in my second year and through my years, I have gotten involved with organizations and events where I was able to use my knowledge of CS as well as my passion for the arts.
With my involvement, I really wanted to dedicate my time to helping increase diversity in the field of STEM. I was the director of Rose Hack, my university's first ever women-centric hackathon. It was hugely successful with overwhelming support from over 40 corporate sponsors, students, and faculty. The event was partially hosted by UCR's up and coming new engineering organization, Women In Computing of which I was the treasurer. With my dedication and passion for helping minority groups in the field of stem, I was awarded with a scholarship to Grace Hopper Celebration 2018 as a Grace Hopper Scholar.
TLDR: Art student turned engineer fighting for women in STEM

I do freelance graphic design in both static and animated designs. I have worked with 2D and 3D graphics and have worked with a large variety of clients. You can find my rates here as well as my dribbble here. My portfolio and other works can be seen here.
I have a 1 year old chartreux named Smokey Reggiano who is toilet trained. He enjoys spending his time begging for food and being held by his human. On special occasions, he wears a handsome bowtie.
UI/UX Design as well as front end development. Portfolio coming soon!
I love natural makeup looks but I also have an affinity for thick dramatic lashes and a bold winged eyeliner. I have been practicing since middle school and also did competetive special effects makeup for theater competitions.
From Cinderella to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, I helped create and dress actors for plays and musicals in highschool through college. I have surprising abilities when it comes to a hand stitch.
Since highschool, I have been attending as well as helping plan hackathons. My first hackathon ever was CodeDay in San Francisco and since then, I have attended or helped organize over 20 hackathons including Citrus Hack and Rose Hack.
One of my favorite things to do at home is to bake. Some of my favorite things to bake are shortbread, chocolate chip cookies, and cupcakes. Every year for the holidays, I bake my family a couple dozen macarons in multiple flavors (usually matcha and coffee are my favorite). Check out my blog post on what I'm up to now!
