Hi, my name is Chris and I’m one of the team at Microsoft in South East Asia helping people to build awesome startup businesses on top of our technology stack. I trained as both a lawyer and a technologist and while I’ve worked in the latter field, I maintain a strong interest in the former. I'm excited about the potential of technology to make the world a better place and I'm doing my damnedest to help people to harness that potential and put it into action.

I started my first business at age 15 in high school. Since then, I've been involved as a director, investor, advisor and/or team member in a number of ventures, most with successful exits or significant funding. In my free time, I enjoy skiing, mountain biking, climbing and other adventure activities.
