My self-summary
A mix between a relentless optimist, a down-to-earth pragmatist, and a hopeless romantic.

I believe a well rounded person should be able to carry an intellectual conversation as well as tear up the dance floor.
What I’m doing with my life
Pursuing the entrepreneurial dream: to follow my own path and to work on things I'm passionate about.

In 2012, I quit my corporate strategy / management consulting career in Toronto and took the plunge into entrepreneurship. I also moved halfway around the world to live in Asia while bootstrapping my business. A few years later, I'm now the co-owner of 2 profitable e-commerce businesses. I initially pursued entrepreneurship after reading "The Four Hour Work Week" and thought that's what I wanted. But now that "The Four Hour Work Week" is within reach, I realize I actually want to work on things I find interesting/meaningful.

So I moved to SF, learned to code (HackReactor) and am now working as a software engineer at a startup - soaking up the knowledge for my next venture.
I’m really good at
Karaoke? ... I wanna say Karaoke, even though that's not really true.
