Hey, I'm Calix! 👋

I'm a sophomore at the USC Iovine & Young Academy, living in LA. Currently, I'm a Hacker-In-Residence at LangChain and exploring new ideas in AI. I post about my USC class projects here.
I started coding in my freshman year of high school, learned basic ML/AI & full-stack web development, attended hackathons, did a few SWE internships, and somehow stumbled into startups.
I spent over a year building 3 different companies, 2 of which ended up being acquired. Most notably, I built Hours which was acquired by Fiveable.
After that, I helped lead product at Fiveable and did engineering/growth at Cornell, Uiflow (YC W21), (a16z, YC), Kinetic, etc. I was also an Atlas Fellow and an On Deck Fellow (ODC1, ODET2).
I moved to LA and study at USC and became 1 of 42 students in the USC Iovine & Young Academy studying CS, design, business, and communication. In my second semester, I was accepted to Y Combinator's W23 batch and I dropped out to pursue my startup full-time in San Francisco.
After the W23 batch, I left my company to come back to school. I moved to NYC for a summer, and am now back in LA enjoying the college life.
I also enjoy building projects. Here's a few:
  • Dream — an AI no-code tool for building fully-functional web apps.
  • Avery — your personal AI assistant & companion.
  • Fuse — a semantic API for executing dynamic workflows.
  • Dewey — an AI-powered, semantic textbook reader.
  • Hours — an accountability-based virtual studying platform for students.
  • Recollect — a memory-tracking app for the forgetful.
  • Cyclic — a daily, rewards-based habit-tracking app.
  • Ano.js — a plug-and-play, interactive web animation platform.
  • Typesite — a markdown-based website builder.
  • Ano.js — an SMS-based Bible study app.
  • 1Academy — an online course platform constructed from curated content.
