About Me

I have always told most of my friends, "Media is my Passion, and Software Development is my Forte".

I love to do media and events related work. I have always tried to engage myself in organising events, doing on stage and back stage things, ranging from online Radio DJs to Video Production Directors. I have done editing for multi-cam production, trailers and events montages.

I am able to learn and pickup software languages pretty fast, and can come up with programming logics easily. As a kid, I have always loved problem solving, and so I enjoy debugging code. The process might be tedious, but it's fun, especially when you found the bug.

Most of the programming languages I know is self-taught. School only refines my way of coding, teaching what to do and not to do, guiding me with the industrial standards and changing my "bad habits".

My hobbies includes playing musical instruments (Drums, Guitar, Bass, Keyboard. Casually), driving and cycling.

Developer

I have been a developer since 2006, starting with just HTML4, to PHP, Java, JavaScript, MySQL, MS SQL, followed by Objective-C (iOS) and Android (Java).

In the beginning, I was the site admin for a game fansite, dealing with simple HTML, to CutePHP (CMS). I manage to learn the languages myself while being the site admin. Later on in 2011, after joining Republic Polytechnic and having taught proper coding, I started looking for freelance jobs while studying and has continued to engage in freelance programming ever since.

In 2012, one of my Facilitators (School Lecturere) spent time to privately teach me Objective-C. Thereafter, I have been updating myself on iOS features. I have help a few clients with apps like GX (a subsidiary of Singtel) and Awards Book for SME Awards.

I later joined Silent Frontier in 2014 as a PHP Developer, specialising in Drupal. In the following year, I left to set up my own business.

2015 is the year I started my own IT business with a partner. We developed the Drupal website for SBACC and is currently working on a few in-house apps.

At the moment, I am looking to specialise in iOS and Android development, with the element of "Coding for User Experience". I have always believed that features are not the priority. It is how you present those features in UX.

Grab Driver
I recently joined Grab as a Driver. As a freelancer, I definitely have some time to spare. Therefore, Grab is a good choice. With flexible hours, I am able to maximise my earning potential.
Event Organiser

I have been in the events and media online industry for a few years, dealing with Shoutcast Radio and games. It all started in 2005, when I joined a game fansite. I was tasked to work on the Shoutcast Radio and events creation for the fansite. In 2006, I rose to be the right-hand man of the site owner, dealing with Site coding, Radio Scheduling and Recruitment, and Events.

During my Polytechnic years, I have been the President of the Film Factory Interest Group and an active member in Studio Interest Group. I learnt video production, editing and multi-camera live production. I specialise in editing videos for Film IG and Directing in Multi-cam setup.

I have been actively doing video, multicam and photo production during my study at Republic Polytechnic. I helped in Open House, Momentum, Reflections, IGNITE! Music Festival and P' Dialogue yearly. I specialise in Directing for Multicam Production and Post Production editing.

In 2014, I started being involved in events organising for another game, Vainglory. I have been working with the Community Manager of SEA for Vainglory to create community events ranging from local gathering, SEA Tournaments, local tournaments and more. I specialise in the Technical side of the events, including the Live Streams and managing of the Shoutcasters.
