Business Bio  LinkedIn Profile

As far as I remember, I’ve always been a technophile, even as a kid, albeit a rather destructive one. As a pre-schooler, I was fascinated with taking apart radios, tape recorders, VCRs, telephones — basically anything with technology inside – just to see how they worked.

I did learn how to put them back together again — somewhat —  but it wasn’t until I taught myself how to program a computer (a good ol’ Apple ][ rig) that I managed to wean that hardware teardown habit and channel my energies to the software world (where destruction and consequent reconstruction were all virtual, much to the relief of my folks).

Computers and technology have been a vital part of my DNA since then — I eventually co-founded venture-funded tech start-ups during the dot-com boom in the late 1990s, worked in technology licensing at Hewlett-Packard, and most recently landed in the capital side of the business as an IP investment professional with Intellectual Ventures, and venture capital investor with EDB Investments, a Singapore government-linked VC fund.

I’m glad to be now part of this incredible team at Xinova, where I am able to indulge my passion for technology and apply my expertise in new venture creation, technology commercialization and capital raising, all at the same place.
