PROFILE

Hello! I currently work for Microsoft as the Consumer Apps and Services Lead covering the Asia Pacific region.


In a nutshell, I'm responsible for overall brand marketing strategy and driving marketing execution for Internet Explorer, Outlook.com, OneDrive and Skype in this part of the world. I created Project Inori Aizawa, a global viral marketing campaign which uses anime to promote Internet Explorer. I also produced Gargantia: Sky Courier, a WebGL-powered online game created in partnership with top Japanese anime studio, Production I.G.

Previously, I was a Technology Evangelist at the Microsoft Innovation Centre in Singapore, where I worked with customers and partners to help them innovate and build cool stuff with Microsoft technologies.

I’m also the co-founder and lead developer of Katsu News, a fully automated and algorithm-driven news aggregator for Japanese anime, music and pop culture news.

Things that excite me include American professional sports, consumer technology, dance, economics, GTD, Japanese pop culture, social media and writing code.

I am based in (too) sunny Singapore.
