I graduated with 1st Class honours from Cass Business School. Straight after university, I cofounded a social shopping fashion website based in London for 2.5 years which was acquired by a German media company. One of my biggest ‘lesson learnt’ for me during that period was the importance of technical execution.
As a non-technical founder, I felt I would have been able to contribute even more if I had some programming chops. This also emphasized the pain I was feeling through my college years in that I had many ideas but was unable to implement them. As a result of which, this is my first serious attempt at keeping a professional blog about startups, my transition from ‘business guy’ to hacker and probably some other stuff that’s interesting.
Having spent the last 3 years teaching myself to code and working on various number of startups and projects as a developer, I feel I’ve achieved what I sought out to accomplish 3 years ago. I am currently working on diapercakes.sg and suddenlycat.com
