    ENTREPRENEUR. TECH ENTHUSIAST.

     

  • Who? What?

    My career has taken me from the Army as an Infantry Officer, teaching math to high school students, hosting the first-ever Secondary School Hackathon in Singapore, working on higher education policies that impacted our local universities, running a Junior College with >1,000 students, to running medium-sized product and tech development teams. I thrive when working with creative and smart people in highly challenging and innovative environments and am skilled at building high-performance teams and nurturing new ideas into viable business models.

     

    My background is a varied mix of advanced mathematics, research, education, technology, management, and policy work. As a Singapore Government Scholar, Cambridge University and Brown University graduate, I bring direct experience with policy-making and strategic planning in the education sector, having worked on several projects including the establishment of new higher educational institutions. In my work, I regularly made contact with C-level executives, and have experience coordinating various governmental and private agencies.
