Who am I?

I was born in India. I grew up in Australia. But I now call Taiwan home.

Nickname: Fish

Professional Summary:

I have professional experience across a range of industries. My professional career started in Australia where I worked as an IT Systems Analyst in the Banking & Finance sector. After moving to Taiwan and studying Chinese for a year I moved into a Marketing position as a leading Taiwanese software company. As Product Marketing Team Lead I was responsible for setting out the messaging strategy for new product releases, and led a team of five multi-national staff to deliver product website related website updates.

As a web designer & developer I have worked on multiple small-scale web projects for local sports teams and associations in Taiwan.

Hobbies:

Touch Football is my main hobby. I help organize social touch & local competitions, as well as play and referee both in Taiwan & overseas.

Being based in Taiwan is great for traveling to amazing places around Asia. I love exploring the region, especially Japan and Korea.

Blog

My blog covers everything from web development, to learnings I've made while starting my own business, to general musings.
