About: Nice to meet you

With entrepreneurial mindset, 20 years of experience in technology, and 8 years in product. I build the concept into a product: from ideation, and research, to specification, design, and development.

John Geirland, the psychology doctor who is a writer and management consultant specializing in new media, says that: "We are multimedia organisms", meaning we can't consume the world using only one sense, we need to have them all fired up. He adds: "we have to use all of our devices for accessing information – not all of which are rational".

Using these inputs, I gained a deeper and better understanding of the products I managed, their core functionality, desires, needs, influences, and effects.

Since 2004, I have managed, planned, implemented, designed, developed, tested, and helped many businesses & startups bring to life various websites, portals, marketing plans, Facebook pages, youtube channels, social projects, desktop, and mobile applications.
