“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication – Leonardo Da Vinci.”


A Singaporean nomad is what describes me best. While I was born and bred in Singapore and graduated from the National University of Singapore’s Business School, my 27 years of working life over 2 distinct careers, brought me to live in 10 different cities in Europe, Middle East, and Southeast Asia. As a Singaporean Diplomat, I lived and worked in Singapore; Brussels, Belgium; Cairo, Egypt; and Geneva, Switzerland. As a hotelier, I lived and worked in London, UK; Lyon France; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Surabaya, Indonesia; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; and Bangkok. Thailand.

I benefitted from working with one of the best Foreign Service in the world and with two of the world’s leading hospitality companies. My stints exposed me to managing various cultures and languages. I am a people-focused person, and my job must make a difference personally to the people I work with.

SVC encompasses my objective of making a difference to people who need it most. A simple product, a simple venture, with the potential to make a big difference in people’s lives.
