Dedicated to discovery.

Before becoming a Software Engineer in emerging technology at Microsoft, Mason held a similar position in the Huaqiangbei electronics district of Shenzhen, China, where he helped architect and develop the user interfaces of robotic tutors aimed at young children, for a local edtech start-up.

It was here he developed an understanding of the varied applications of artificial intelligence, and a passion for digital fabrication, the worldwide maker movement, and - importantly - the people of China and their culture of innovation for collective good.

These lessons are brought to bear in each of his technical projects. Today, that means serving some of Microsoft's most valued customers as a mercenary Software Engineer driving the adoption of the company's earliest technologies. With interests including space exploration, Deep Learning, and innovation in Human Computer Interaction, who knows what tomorrow will bring. Oh - 他也每天学中文.
