Ly Chheng was born and raised in the Washington, D.C. area. Having studied English Literature at Stanford University and Creative Writing at Rutgers, it seemed only natural that he would become a web developer. Before joining FRONTLINE, he worked in Silicon Valley, then spent some time in the Midwest and New York City. He is now a complete Boston convert and considers himself a retroactive lifelong Red Sox fan (and has the baseball cap to prove it). When he's not working on digital interactives or the FRONTLINE website, he spends most of his time hiking, traveling, and watching soccer (a.k.a. football — go Arsenal!).
