I'm the designer of NOTD. I enjoy working on mods and have been playing Blizzard games
since WarCraft back in the mid-1990s. I feel the mod community has more
to offer gamers than just DOTA, and decided that StarCraft 2 is a fresh
opportunity to build a quality mod.
I'm passionate about outdoors, travel and reading. I've worked at IBM and Procter & Gamble in Malaysia and Thailand before relocating back to Singapore where I now work as a Consultant at Michael Page.
I'm also a member of Mensa and Toastmasters International. I've been paddling with the Canadian Dragonboat team here in Singapore since 2008.

From the football pitch to the more prosaic setting of a
newsroom, life often revolves around one element – cooperation. Having
played some competitive Warcraft III, and subsequently, leading guilds
in World of Warcraft, my gaming experience has led me to believe that
cooperation in its ideal form, is a balance of individualism within
A journalist by trade, I believe that if life is likened to a game, then everyone can be a winner. So together, let’s win and have some fun in the process.

Some of you will undoubtedly recall StarCraft’s precursor
real-time strategy game, WarCraft 2. These imaginary green-skinned Orcs
in that game had something to do with who I came to be today.
It led me to where I am, studying a course on software engineering in Multimedia University, Malaysia. I don’t know why I’d condemn myself for a lifetime of hard labor to develop the best game there ever is. It’s great to be in a team, making something that I hope you’d enjoy. For that, I feel grateful being a part of NOTD.
