One-liner

ML Developer who has run companies, can be a one-man tech team (AI + full stack web + basic iOS apps), and has a fairly good network in the media and think-tank communities

Key past achievements

  2. Loki.ai [Sep 2017 - Present]: Created a general-purpose data and AI products company. Scaled it from $0-$180k in annual revenue as a solo-founder and only full-time employee in 3 years.

Could've gone somewhere, but I left after becoming aware of the fundraising situation of the company (investors already had 70% of the company for <$3M raised). Clients: Singapore Press Holdings, Khaleej Times, National Bookstore (Philippines), Carro
