I’m Andie Chu. You can also call me cad0420. I’m a creative coder based in Shanghai, China. My primary interests are creative front-end, audio-visual, generative art and music. Exploring new technologies and crafting them into a solid piece of work is also one of my main experiments.

I used to be a backend developer and a product manager. Then I found my true calling -- creative coding -- an industry which combines both technology and creativity. I love learning new things and experimenting them in real life. If you have any interesting idea but don't know how to realize it, let me help you bring it to life!
