Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was schooled and soldiered in Singapore and have been living in
London for more than 7 years; first for college, and started my
career here thereafter.
I work hard, love sports, read lots, eat well and try and travel as
much as I can.
I'm an INTJ.
*Update: I now move back and forth between London and New York.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a trader at an American hedge fund. Basically, I take
calculated risks for a living, like my mother and grandmother did,
despite their much tougher odds.
I'm also an active angel investor, focusing mainly on education,
health, and finance.
Travel is part of my life. I generally prefer the two extremes:

I organize my life around maximising my energy levels - I eat well,

Old school cultural food that grandmothers can recognize, wherever
it's from. Our current processed food environment has done more

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family - I've a young niece. She's impossibly cute. Like,
Good food - I'm a decent enough cook to feed a small party.
Friends - you're the average of the 5 people you spend most time
with. I curate them.
Sports - Crossfit (hands-down favorite), running, cycling,
Fitness begets energy, and energy is happiness.
Nature - my first ever vacation job was as a volunteer assistant
zookeeper at 16. Lesson learned: warthog crap stinks the most, and
you don't want to piss a hippo off.
Books - physical, audio, Kindle. All of them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
