Anny speaks, writes, and draws comics about the intersection of technology, art, and personal investing. She played the bagpipes. She was also trilingual at age of twelve, having lived on three continents (Asia, Europe, and Canada). Now she is bilingual and works as a software engineer.

She has an insatiable apetite for the following fields:

  • investing: how to make money work for you
  • software engineering: and its intersection with human psychology
  • comics: how to pack the maximum punch into pictures with words

In addition to blogging at annyhe.com, Anny is a contributor to the Salesforce Engineering Blog.

Anny graduated with a degree in Computing Science from Simon Fraser University.

Did you play the bagpipes?

Yes I did. For 7 years. This is a video me playing the Canadian anthem on the bagpipes.

Here is another video of me playing Amazing Grace with the wonderful Simon Fraser University Pipe Band.

Why do I write this blog?

After several on-off attempts to blog, I revived this blog during the Christmas break in 2017, after my grandfather passed away. If my grandfather had a blog, I can learn more about him even after he passed away. Perhaps I should chronicle my life too. That way if people are curious, they can reach at least a part of me.

A less sentimental reason is to have a repository of well-chronicled answers to the usual questions people ask me about. They are often regarding investing, drawing (as in fine arts), or software engineering. It is pragmatic to point people to articles instead of trying to regurgitate the main points within 5 minutes.

Happy reading!
