An easy going guy with a very big passion in harnessing technology to solve sustainability issues in the built environment, especially in Southeast Asia. Not a tree hugger but a firm believer in balancing between the built environment and nature. Feel free to reach out!
A little bit about myself
Ok, just a little bit about myself. First of all, I am not a political analyst and I am neither trained in political science nor international politics. I write quite a fair bit about Southeast Asia because I grew up in Singapore and is naturally more interested in the developments around the region.
Also, because of my career background, I don’t have the luxury of specialising in anything even though I anchor very strongly in matters relating to the built environment. I’m more of an intersection among my competing interests therefore oscillating between built environment, sustainability, ESG, technology, organisational development and Southeast Asia.
Importantly, I read, I write, I learn, I teach, I listen, I discuss and I do. Endless cycle of that but I enjoy what I do and this blog is a fraction bit of my personal life. I end off this section with these quotes. I am not trying to be an intellectual. No way. I really connected deeply with these quotes and hope that you would enjoy it as much as I did.
