About me

Posted by Ely on April 9th, 2006

Ely Liu (a.k.a. Yii Lih Liu) was born in Taipei, Taiwan on December 17, 1980. Ely and his parents moved to the United States in the summer of 1990. Ever since Ely was a kid, he was interested in gadgets and computers. Eventually, that interest led to a B.S. degree in Information & Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine in 2004. Since 2004, Ely has been working for the Walt Disney Internet Group located in North Hollywood, California as a software engineer.


A lot of interest/hobby come and go, but a few stayed for a while. Another long term interest that Ely has had is the interest in cars. The years leading up to obtaining his driver’s license, Ely voraciously read up everything related to automobiles that he can get his hands on. It would make sense for this interest to die after he got his driver’s license and his first car, but it didn’t die. The interest continued and he loved cars more than ever. With the money he made from his first full time job, he got his first sports car, a 2004 Nissan 350z roadster.

People that visit Ely’s cube would instantly be able to identify Ely’s interests. Besides the car posters that Ely has up in his cube, there are also a lot of Lakers items, including posters, bang sticks, desktop calendar, etc. Ely has been a long time Lakers fan. One day, he dreams to sit courtside at one of the Lakers games.

One of Ely’s long term goal is to get an MBA from a prestigious school and move into management. He is currently studying for his GMAT exam.
