Hi there! I am the founder of CakeResume.
I built the site to solve my own problem - I built some websites and apps before, and wanted to create a page to showcase my projects. But I couldn't find a tool that can help me build this page easily without content restrictions. So I built the website by myself.
CakeResume is more than a resume, it's a hybrid of a traditional resume and a personal website. It helps you introduce yourself in the way you prefer. By the drag-and-drop editor, it makes sure everyone can create an unique and vivid self introduction.
Hope you like it. Thank you!

I know not all that may be coming. But be it what it will, I’ll go to it laughing.

The Cake of CakeResume

The name CakeResume means we make creating resumes a piece of cake, not because I like baking.
(However, I did learn how to bake after I founded CakeResume ;)

As a Poet...

I write poems sometimes, especially when I am down. My poems were written in Chinese.

Republic of China Armed Forces, Second Lieutenant, Aug 2013 - Jul 2014

As a second lieutenant chief counselor in the Republic of China Armed Forces, I built ArmyApp with 4 of my college friends. It helps soldiers report their locations during their vacation, & takes only 3 seconds to report. It caused an army-wide sensation and became news in Taiwan. Thus, the Chief of the Republic of China Army gave me a prize. The Army Command Headquarters also gave me a chance to lead a short term project to digitize other information for the army.

Moby Dick

Call me Ishmael. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world.

One Hundred Years of Solitude

Many years later as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendía was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice.

Outlaws of the Marsh

After Five Dynasties' turmoil and strife, The clouds dispersed and revealed the sky, Refreshing rain brought old trees new life, Culture and learning once again were high. Ordinary folk in the lanes wore silk, Music drifted from mansions and towers, Under the heavens all was serene, Men dozed off at noon midst gay birds and flowers.

The Old Man and The Sea

He was an old man who fished alone in a skiff in the Gulf Stream and he had gone eighty-four days now without taking a fish.
