Ommune IT Solutions Pty Ltd
Director / Lead Designer
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
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.
International Schools (Thailand & Taiwan)
Prior to self-employment I spent 2 years abroad teaching both children and adults various academic disciplines in English. The ages of my students ranged from kindergarten to professional adults and the disciplines included English, Math, Science, Social and Health Studies.
After completion of secondary school on the Gold Coast I completed a Diploma of Business Management with Open Colleges (formally known as Thompson Education Direct).
The academic curriculum provided an initial introduction to practical management techniques, book-keeping methods, business systems and a variety of other disciplines.
I began my university degree at Macquarie University studying International Business. After my first year I changed my major to Development Studies and Culture as a result of the poverty I’d witnessed during my travels.
The completion of this arts major and the professional pursuits which followed dramatically improved my research and writing abilities.

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.
Synergy Chess (Double Chess)
Synergy Chess is a form of double chess created by innovator Mr. Rob Olsson. Under a mutually beneficial partnership agreement, I invested into his idea, built synergychess.net website and marketed it through various SN channels.
Synergy Chess is available for purchase here, online version coming soon.
