Key Accomplishments

Able to conceive, implement, and complete large complex projects. Able to share the vision and hire people to participate.
Have developed and complete a number of GPS chip set architectures. Also, have done business development, customer development, and FAE work. Large engineering projects are like developing a musical symphony: there are many phases, movements, and team players. At eRide, our products had musical references. As a musician, I have written, recorded, and release multiple CDs.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Greatest strength is continuous curiosity, creativity and learning. Since childhood, I also learned the power of hard work and never quitting. I am able to study and learn new things and integrate them in a new way. Now I am fascinated by great business models. More specifically, the ones where the key hypotheses have been tested by getting out and talking to real customers. Lean customer development principles is something I have practiced all my career, but now it needs to be more focussed.
