I love comics, games, building businesses and investing. I have worked as an accountant in a Big 4 and eventually joined an Asset Management Company being involved in equities.

Recently I started an app company and I managed to successfully pitched some companies to prospective investors. In my free time, I love to teach and mentor.

I love to travel, code, rock climb and talk and talk and talk.
