Hi, I’m Andrew Vuong.
Developer, Entrepreneur, Tech Fascinated, ex-Med Student.
I had initially wanted to pursue medicine and become a physician because my father passed away from chronic illnesses when I was fourteen. I didn’t want any other children to have to go through my childhood without a father and a parent without their partner.
I realized during my time in medicine that healthcare is an incredibly inefficient and passive world. I would be limited in how I may help people by the control of others who benefit from stagnation and inefficiency. The only way to truly bring about meaningful changes in healthcare is through disruptive technology.
My purpose in life is to help substantially reduce suffering and fear that comes from diseases and illnesses. My vision that I left medical school for and that I am building towards will bring about a new form of healthcare delivery through technology. I want to be a part of creativity and innovation that will progress humanity.
I wanted to break the status quo in suffering and take advantage of creativity and the power of software. I transitioned out of medical school to study computer science because I wanted to improve society at a scale. Rather than slapping a bandaid on a waterfall of problems as a physician, I want to actually stop the waterfall of problems.
I am excited to incorporate technology into innovative ideas for the betterment and advancement of humanity. There are endless possibilities with the tools available to build, especially in the digital space. We live in an amazing time for creativity and can harness that power through the Internet to disrupt stagnant industries and progress. I want to learn and grow with great people.
My personal projects double as fun hobbies that grow my software developing and entrepreneurial skills. I am currently working on several very exciting projects, one of which is a health tech app that crowdsources allergy data.
In my free time, I love cooking, biking, reading, and learning anything, particularly on history, space, technology, and why things are the way they are. I also enjoy exploring new places and culture.
I am very interested in healthcare, wearables, IoT, A.I.
I hope you enjoy following my high hopes, exciting journey into uncertainty.
I’ve taken a leap of faith and have not quite landed yet. I hope I can be of great use to this world when I do.
