About me

Explore personal growth, career insights, and creative expression on my website. Join me on my journey of self-discovery and professional development.

Why a website

To learn a new skill. To reflect and express my thoughts. To collate my experiences. To connect people similar to me.

I think the biggest reason is that for a while I felt like my life, story and experiences have been so fragmented and I figured the why not control my own narrative and create my own space!

Who am I

For those who don't and do know me I am Simon. My identity is defined by a lot of titles - brother, son, boyfriend, awesome friend, legend, management consultant, lawyer, life coach, traveller, food critic (but not chef), immortal ranked Valorant player, Taekwondo national gold medallist, Bravery Award recipient from Queen Elizabeth II... the list goes on.

I am the child of a proud single-mother (who also was an immigrant) who has had the odds stacked up against me but I have always embraced the challenge.

What to expect

I have a lot of personal stories and learnings to share... like the time I nearly got arrange-marriaged in India, or the time I got tickets to the F1 by befriending a carpark security guard or when I travelled to Morocco by boat and found myself in a very dark alleyway surrounded strange men asking payment for their "city tour"...

I also have many of professional learnings to share... Growing up as a child I really had no mentors or role models that I could model my career after. I stumbled onto my opportunities by being open to trying new things. My hope is that even if my thoughts can save the time/ steer the direction of even one reader... I would have achieved the intended ROI on this website.

What do I live by

My goal is to create a lasting legacy and impact. My motto is pressure makes diamonds.
