About me & my work:

I'm an engineer who is into social sciences. As you can tell, I do a lot of catalyzing, problem solving, design. i do those not only for products but also for processes.

How did I end up being like this? I did not want to be an engineer but wanted learn math. Yet I did both by majoring in math engineering. Then immediately after graduation I started working in a non-engineer position, project manager.

I did project management because I liked optimization. But then I realized, I love making product decisions and just optimizing the process of a project isn't what that matters. Think about it; there is a project planned and executed perfectly yet the idea is so stupid the success of the project management is worthless.

This enlightenment pushed me to study design and persuasion. I moved on to become a product manager and did masters in persuasion. Then I got into startups, incubators, accelerators, consulting, authoring etc.

As you can see, I am an eclectic person. I like discovering things, designing, thinking on whys. And never let my job drive my life but my wants drive what I do.
