Meet the team - Curtis

Nay ho! Ngor hai Curtis Yip.  This means Hello! I’m Curtis Yip, in Cantonese.  I am a Senior Developer at Flume and have worked here for almost 2 years.  I come from a very busy and fast paced city which is known for its BBQ pork and dim sum restaurants. You guessed it, Hong Kong!

I moved to New Zealand when I was 17. It took me some time to transition to the different culture but after a few years here in New Zealand, I started discovering the wonderful side of this country, enjoying the lifestyle and the kiwi culture. In the end, I completely fell in love with New Zealand and decided to live here permanently.

I studied computer science at the University of Auckland, established my career and started my family here. I have two boys and spending time with them has become my favourite hobby. I also really enjoy snowboarding, gaming and hanging out with friends.

“No pain, no gain” 

is one of my favourite quotes.  I pretty much live by this quote and apply it to everything I do; playing sports and at work as well. I strongly believe to be successful in something we must go through all sorts of failures, pressure and difficult situations to be able to grow and learn.

Nay Hoh
I'm Curtis and a full stack developer. I'm very passionate about web development so I became a web developer once I graduated from Uni. I won't tell you what year that was as it will expose my age, but I can tell you that Facebook wasn't around then! When I'm not working, I love to spend my time with my kids.
