Ommune IT Solutions Pty Ltd
Director / Lead Designer
2013 - 2016
Ommune IT Solutions Pty Ltd was an IT company I first launched in Cairns, Queensland with the help of my Indian counterpart (Ommune IT Solutions Pvt Ltd [India]). With the assistance of anywhere between 10-20 personal remote staff and a dedicated team in Ahmedabad with similar numbers we built numerous websites and offered IT solutions for both domestic and foreign clientele.
Phoenix Web Solutions
Director / Sales and Product Manager
2009 - 2013
Phoenix Web Solutions was a small web and application development business launched in 2009 (during my university years) with Mr Siwoo Han. I took care of administrative duties, sales, product testing and innovation. Mr Han took care of programming responsibilities.
One of our projects included the design, programming and testing of a web-based point-of-sale application named ‘iWin POS’. It wasn’t a success; however, during these years we discovered Bitcoins and I took up an interest in Blockchain technology.

Affiliations and Memberships
2004 - 2005

Investments and Contributions
James Allen – From Poverty to Power (1901)
The works of James Allen is a guiding compass on how I conduct my life, character and mannerisms. I personally believe that this English author who lived from 1864 to 1912 reached the heights of spiritual emancipation and left a number of books to assist and renew the faith of those following the same righteous pathway.
James Allen’s first book is a refuge for those who seek to find a permanent escape from all human suffering. As the foreword suggests it was written for men and women, rich or poor, learned or unlearned, worldly or unworldly.
His enlightened pen fills my heart with bliss and the pages of this book (in my humble opinion) contain the doctrine of true religion without dogmatic exclusion or exclusivity.
