About Me

Leonard Ng. Gemini. A Missionary Entrepreneur. 30 something (Not anymore), 2 sons, 1 wife (that still is, as always). Met my wife at the age of 6. Co-Founded KeptMe with her some years later.

:

Addicted to all things digital. Wrote my first computer programme at the age of 9. Owned my first computer (Apple //e) in 1985. Owned my first mobile phone (Ericsson GH338) in 1994. Downloaded my first MP3 song in 1997. Built and launched MP3 players before the Apple iPod. User of 1550+ apps and creator of a few of those. Once bought 10+ full IKEA Billy bookcases of physical books, but recently extend 150+ more on Kindle. Have been working as a Product Manager to create / manage products & solutions around digital stuff. Occasionally (and going to be more often) step outside the box and create / manage business & process to facilitate the creation / management of such business ideas.

:

Enjoy books, movies, articles, theories, dreaming, digital creation, cooking, travelling… or basically anything that are related to creation and consumption of Stories.

Passionate about catching the a-ha moments of stories and theories, the moments thats the links between the dots slowly float back to the surface and form the bigger picture.

:

Sometimes people call me a visionary. I see myself as just having the ability of making dreams realistically, by linking all the stories in my head into an epic and mega movie. Which means sometimes I am just a bigger dreamer than an average person.

:

Believer in Existentialism – that each individual (as opposed to society) is solely responsible for giving meaning to life and living it passionately and sincerely. Each and everyone of us as an individual have the freedom and independent will to live as a conscious being rather than what labels, roles, stereotypes, definitions, or other preconceived categories the individual fits. “Existence precedes essence.”

Won’t settle within the boundaries and assume full responsibility of leading myself to strike for the mission instead of waiting for the “system” to push me around. Believe that the best to achieve this is to “Act out of the box” instead of merely simply thinking out of it.

:

Studied my first degree in Sydney. Majored in Economics, Marketing and Chemical Engineering. Decided to complete two more postgrad degrees (plus started the process of get a PhD afterwards) hoping to make the “tail” on my business card longer, only to learn afterward that most of companies these days don’t print qualifications on business cards anymore. Damn…

Have worked previously in US, EU and CN listed companies with numerous interesting titles. Core duties included the ability to identify any missing bits and to explain/inject these bits and pieces back into the stream.

So far, have founded more than one startups which created digital products that aim to disrupt the status quo and invoke the true human nature which bring the best within our souls.

During the journey, still trying to figure out how to live my mission while simultaneously trying to find the joy of remaining sober after taking the Red Pill. That said, not too sure if the rest of the world is ready for this. The list of food and amusements below are only applicable for those of you who took the Blue Pill.
