I am fascinated by gaps, and making sure that no-one falls through them. I work at the intersection of emerging markets and emerging technologies, and believe fundamentally in the power of design to create better futures for individuals and the world at large.

Community:
  • Design Thinking Hong Kong Meetup Group: Founded in July of 2012, currently 3,100+ members. After instigating and running the group from 2012 to 2017, I receded from the community to focus more fully on Bitcoin-related pursuits. The community is now self-organised and supported by a fantastic group of early Design Thinkers, Service Designers and User Experience Practitioners in Hong Kong.
  • Bitcoin Hong Kong Meetup Group: Founded in July of 2012, currently 5,300+ members. This community that arose from this group helped feed into the creation of the Bitcoin Association of Hong Kong, now driven by Leonhard Weese and Larry Salibra, two deeply capable and talented early community members.
