About JH0

The back of Jonathan Ho on the edge of Tai Mo Shan


Jonathan Ho, as known as JHo grew up in Hong Kong, with a designer mum and a engineer dad. Under his parents' influence, JH0 developed an interest in both art and engineering, which he also showed talent in, being able to build and programme lego mindstorms NXT at 5. Then later on, NXT can not fullfill his need and he start building with arduino and learn c++.

JH0 has got the engineering strength from his father and the artistic capacity from his mother who used to be a fashion designer. His interest is sort of diversified. Anything he do with the computer is for the pleasure of it. In his backpack, he carry a box of professional screw drivers wherever he go, because he is often asked to handle repair jobs, be it of big and small. And he take pride of it.

Besides, I am very fond of kayaking and hiking. To commensurate the start of a school semester, I would get up very early and climb the Lion Rock Mountain, a famous landmark in Hong Kong to watch the sunrise on my own before travelling back to school. This gives me a moment of serenity and prepare myself psychologically for taking up tough school work.

I also take pleasure in doing photography, painting and cooking, and I find such engagement gives a better balance of me. The process of learning guitar actually is quite entertaining, especially when observing the changes of how my stiff hands mastering the chords swiftly through practices. It’s kind of like meeting the mysterial force inside my brain face to face, who writes the computer codes to enable me taking up new skill.

Somehow, I enjoy a great deal sharpening knife with a whetstone. What interest me is not the knife but those technical aspects such as how to angle the knife against the surface, how to move my hands for less energy consumption, how thin is the blade being considered as sharp, etc. To sort out those issues in a practical way is very intriguing. So, in the kitchen of my home all the dull knives are under my care.
