Your next ergonomic keyboard

Welcome to my personal site, where I planned to share all my works in mechanical keyboards field

Who am I?

I am a Vietnamese young man, who is so interested in mechanical keyboards and can spend whole day working on them. Kiwi is my favorite fruit.

My background is electronics engineering. I used to work as an engineer, a salesman, sometimes a freelancer of software and web design, or a media editor. And I am not a master in any field, honestly.

Regarding mechanical keyboard, most of the time I do PCB designs, sometimes I also make plates and cases (which is inevitable, people would like to purchase a full-kit product, not a single PCB).

I hope you can find something interesting here, and just in case you want to contact me for anything (collaboration, feedbacks, proposing ideas, chit-chat, flirting,…) feel free to contact me: kiwikey.vn@gmail.com (more ways at the end of page).
