Hello, I'm Bruno.

I was born in Hong Kong and raised in Vancouver, Canada. I'm currently living in Menlo Park, California, where I'm studying Learning Design and Technology at the Stanford Graduate School of Education.

I'm particularly interested in workforce development. More specifically, I'm trying to understand how we can best support newcomers with navigating education and employment opportunities.

Prior to coming to Stanford, I was an investor at the TELUS Pollinator Fund for Good, one of North America's major corporate impact venture capital funds. I focused on edtech and healthcare technologies, got to meet some phenomenal, impact-driven entrepreneurs, and try some really cool products. I also co-founded Propel Impact, an experiential training program that prepares youth for jobs in social impact.

I'm a long-suffering Vancouver Canucks fan and an avid reader. One day, I hope to open a coffee bar-bookstore-seafood restaurant-speakeasy with my wife.


I acknowledge that the land I currently live on is the ancestral homeland of the Ohlone people. I was raised in the unceded, traditional, and ancestral land of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
