MY WORK

About me

PROFESSIONAL PATH

I graduated with a BSc. Computer Science from the National University of Singapore in 1999. My first 2 jobs were at startups where I learnt from the many challenges of startup life. After a teaching stint at Nanyang Polytechnic, I landed at Electronic Arts where I would spend 8 years and go on to work on such iconic video games as Need For Speed and FIFA World Cup. In 2013, I left EA and Vancouver and headed to Melbourne where I would go on to tutor at RMIT and eventually start Ohmi Labs and co-found First 11 with Mark Di Dio. I am currently working on First 11, a social soccer app and Yäku ga Rirrakay, a phonetic iPad app for Aboriginal kids to learn about new words and how they sound in Dhuwaya.

I was born in Mauritius where I stayed until I finished high school. I completed my degree and worked in Singapore. I also worked in Japan and Canada. Currently, I reside in Melbourne, Australia.
