Tien currently resides in San Diego, CA and is a co-founder of CPC Strategy, an online ecommerce consulting agency. 

He gained interest in photography back in high school during a photography class where he'd spend his afternoons shooting photos on film and developing them in the dark room. 

Since then he has been shooting digital pictures of anything he can get his hands on, from weddings to portraits to events around San Diego, to his favorite and most cooperative subject, his dog.

He spends his free time with Rubik's cubes while rooting for the underachieving Raiders and UCLA sports teams where he graduated with a mathematics/economics degree.
