Hi there! Let me introduce myself.

I spent the early part of my career as an auditor with PricewaterhouseCoopers gaining valuable experience in the technical aspects of business, accounting, finance and regulatory compliance. I have spent the last decade as an entrepreneur realising opportunities in the education, skills and technology sector. As an entrepreneur, I have practical knowledge about securing contracts, managing projects on a timely and effective manner and all financial matters relating to running an enterprise. One of the more notable projects that I have realised was the FIRA Robot-Soccer initiative among the Malaysian Polytechnics being one of the early movers of the initiative since 2006 and seeing it through the culmination of the initiative with securing Malaysia’s rights to host the 18th FIRA RoboworldCup & Congress 2013. Currently, I am spearheading pitchIN and WatchTower & Friends’ venture into the education sector I am passionate about entrepreneurship and enthusiastic about working with startups and entrepreneurs in the journey to realise their vision of the future.
