Hi, my name is Jan Chong. I've been working at various technology companies in the Bay Area as an engineer and engineering manager since 2007.

I moved to San Francisco in 2005, while I was still in school. Like so many people, I was drawn to SF's vibrant restaurants, nature and community, even as it came with roommates, extra jobs and a lot of moving to keep rent manageable. I'm now the proud parent of two girls that I'm raising here in San Francisco and I hope that they'll grow up loving their birth city as much as I've come to.

I joined GrowSF because I fervently believe that you shouldn't have to win the lottery to live and work in San Francisco. I'm pro-affordable housing and pro-public transportation (much to the chagrin of my children, who would much rather I drive them to school 😊) and I want to help make my beliefs a reality for our city.
