ABOUT ME

After graduating from Temasek Polytechnic, I joined the National University of Singapore (NUS) where I graduated with a Bachelor with Honours in Computing (Information System). I have a good 15 years of experience in the IT industry which stemmed from my childhood love for video games where I wondered how games were formed. This led me to designing a simple game service using Microsoft Office software, my first business venture at the age of 10. While this early venture failed, the learning experience laid the groundwork for subsequent business opportunities. I briefly worked in Microsoft before setting out to find my path. This led me to RC9 Group Pte Ltd. With 3 years of hard work, the company was valued at 1.60 million dollars as of December 2016. Right now I'm working on Corsiva Lab, another new venture of mine. I received awards such as the IT Youth Award Finalist 2017 from the Singapore Computer Society as well as the Rising Entrepreneur of the Year 2015/2016 in Singapore Entrepreneurs' Award 2015/2016. Outside of IT, I am the Vice-Chairman of Punggol Community Club’s Youth Executive Committee since 2013. In my free time, I enjoy walking around the Central Business District and reading management articles.
