James Yu

Hi, I’m James Yu, a passionate hacker & writer.

I am currently on sabbatical, spending my time with family, traveling, and writing fiction.
Previously, I was the product manager on Facebook 360, and worked on Facebook's first VR app. Before that, I founded Parse, which was acquired by Facebook in 2013.
I am passionate about building products that are both powerful and easy to use.
I like advising startups. If you’re building something interesting and think I can help, drop me a line at jamesjacobyu -at- gmail.com
When I’m not thinking about digital products, I like to play table tennis, take photos, lift weights, write words, cook food, and read science fiction.
