My latest enterprise is LaLoka Labs. We build software with the hope of making people happier human beings. LaLoka Labs is also my platform to experiment with things which I find interesting.

I am also the founder and director for Xoxzo Inc. which provides a simple web API platform for telephony services. After 14 years of running the business, in October 2021, I sold a 67% stake in Xoxzo to Accrete Inc.. Consequently, I divested all my shares in Xoxzo in January 2024.

I am a business founder, a software engineer, founder and co-founder of PyCon JP and PyCon MY.

I am originally from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and have been a resident of Japan since 1997. I graduated from the Engineering Faculty, of Saga University. I am currently residing in Nerima-ku, Tokyo.

I use git, practice design patterns and unit tests heavily.

Previously I worked for Yahoo Japan, Inc. as a software engineer and Amazon Japan as a marketing manager.
