About Me πŸ”₯_πŸ”₯

Entrepreneur and Investor

πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹ Growing up in Hong Kong while living in a metaverse. When I was a child, I used to be lazy but full of curiosity about the world, so I promised myself I only do what I love to do after graduating from university. πŸ‘»πŸ‘»

Now building a new kind of Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) in the metaverse and pushing for the Decentralized Web, aka Web3.

I also spend some amount of time doing angel investing particularly interested in the Web3 ecosystem (e.g. NFT, DAO, DeFi, GameFi, Metaverse, etc.) and disruptive technologies. If you are working in any of these areas, visual art, generative art, or have any startup ideas, Β please reach out.

Previously, I worked for the Web3 Foundation primarily being part of Polkadot's launch team to deliver the core component for the next generation of the Internet (Web 3.0). Besides that, I was working on Polkadot's educational-related areas and Grants team to evaluate different Web3 ecosystem projects. Before that, I was responsible for build-up the Asia community including hosting technical workshops, hackathons, and community building.

I am an open-minded person and usually like talking with people about various things in our life. If anything related to Art, Books, Cooking, Travelling, Startup, or Investing you would like to share or talk, just shoot me an email to have a chat.

Getting rich is not just about luck; happiness is not just a trait we are born with. These aspirations may seem out of reach, but building wealth and being happy are skills we can learn.
