Product Guy / Fan of Many Things


Hello! My name is Jonathan and I currently work as the Director of Product for ONE Championship.

Before I joined ONE Championship, I was the Director of Product at Rakuten Viki, leading a team of product managers in building and growing Viki's highly rated apps on web, mobile and TV platforms.

And before that, I spent seven years at Microsoft in a variety of different regional roles, including developer relations, consumer marketing and business management.

Some of the interesting products I helped build in the past include Viki, Soompi, Rakuten Sports, Rakuten LIVE, Inori Aizawa, Gargantia: Sky Courier and Soompi Awards - a fan engagement event that broke a Guiness World Record in 2019.

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

Things that excite me include gaming, esports, cryptocurrencies, Cleveland sports teams, Asian pop culture and entertainment in general.

I live in (too) sunny Singapore.
