Singapore (SG),


I'm a Software Engineer with a Computer Science background, working in the industry since 2009. Thrilled by the start-up world, I'm an enthusiastic developer, proficient in getting things done. I never turn down a good challenge and I'm always seeking to learn. I believe that developers should actively contribute to OpenSource as a means to learn and give back to the community. On the free time, I'm a life lover by nature, play football on a regular basis and go out scuba-diving every now and then.
