Zernyu Chou


Zernyu is a software developer who literally grew up thinking in code. He wrote his first lines of code in fifth grade and never turned back, ultimately receiving a Bachelors degree in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He spent his first two years out of college at a digital marketing agency developing its next-generation content management system, but he knew his heart lay in the risky, uncertain, and fast-changing world of startups and exciting ideas. In his spare time, “Z” spends a lot of time cycling and co-founded the up-and-coming local bicycle-racing club, Bonkers.
