I am a full stack soft­ware ar­chi­tect

– I spe­cialise in mi­cro-pro­ces­sor and mid­dle­ware (a soft­ware that con­nect all the soft­ware to­gether). Dur­ing the course of my 22-year ca­reer, I have held se­nior man­age­ment po­si­tions in multi-na­tional com­pa­nies in­clud­ing Or­a­cle, IBM, and CA, where I drove a large part of the core se­cu­rity soft­ware busi­ness and es­tab­lished new busi­ness units. I am also the dig­i­tal econ­omy ad­vi­sor of the Na­tional Re­search Foun­da­tion Sin­ga­pore’s tech­nol­ogy board. There, I spear­head the man­power de­vel­op­ment.

How do you achieve work-life bal­ance? I try not to bring work home. About five years ago, I started do­ing marathons and since then I have been do­ing at least two marathons (Sun­down and Stan­dard Char­tered) a year. Run­ning reg­u­larly helps keep my stress level down. When­ever I have the time, I will join the Sin­ga­pore Shuf­flers for their Mon­day and Wed­nes­day In­ter­val Train­ing at Evans Road and Kal­lang Prac­tice Track. Dur­ing the week­ends, I will join the 5km Parkrun at East Coast Park.
