My name is Tony Hue and welcome to my virtual home. In real life, I call the Bay Area my home, specifically sunny San Francisco. I graduated from the University of California, Irvine where I received a BA in Business Administration and a minor in Informatics in 2013.

Tony Hue

I'm passionate about mobile and web technology - it's also how I found my love for writing when I started LonePlacebo in 2009. In addition to writing about apps, gadgets, and other news in the tech world, I host a podcast with Joseph Chang, my partner in crime.

In my spare time, I also enjoy building websites. WordPress was my first foray into web development after teaching myself HTML, CSS, and PHP. As a Web Developer for Student Life & Leadership at UCI, I helped build tools and reports to support administrative staff's efforts to improve the college experience for students on campus.

To check out my latest work, I recommend starting with my portfolio and then visiting my laboratory.

During college, I interned at organizations including Kaiser Permanente and Taco Bell where I focused on web accessibility and business intelligence, respectively. In addition, I've had previous roles in social media marketing and graphic design.
