Hello world! I am

Edward Teo

I am an adventurer.

about me

Fascinated by software technology since young, I created my first webpages on geocities and angelfire when I was about 11 (circa year 2000).

After endeavoring on a couple of freelance website projects, the first major project I successfully completed was implementing an infosys management system for the military while in conscription. I was responsible and accountable for everything from gathering user requirements via on-the-job training, to negotiating and persuading the initiation of said project, to designing and developing the system from scratch in PHP, MySQL, jQuery, and setting up an intranet network for the system.

Afraid that I couldn’t catch up with technology after 2 years in the military, I almost gave up the tech career path. Yet ironically it was exactly the opportunity that I seized in the military which convinced me of my calling to a career in technology field, despite having graduated with a masters degree in accounting.

On hindsight, it is precisely I am armed with this dual skill set, that I am fully capable of understanding layman requirements and real world problems, and confidently translating them into actionable and practical solutions.

Since learning more is never bad, I am also fluent in the Japanese language. 🙂

Personality

TEAM PLAYER

I enjoy working with small teams where members are passionate and driven to create products of high value.

ANALYTICAL

I gather requirements from layman users and translate into technical specifications. I map complex process flows into easy-to-understand application logic to aid technical development of complex products.

PROBLEM SOLVER

I am passionate in solving problems whether it has to be brainstorming with team members or coming up with solutions by myself.

PROACTIVE

I like driving process improvement initiatives to maximize productivity.

Hobbies

ICE SKATING

Recently got to explore this and fell in love with it immediately.

AIKIDO

Eternally grateful to have achieved 初段 (first degree black belt) in 2016 at Japan’s 暁會 after a few years at Singapore’s 心柔會.

NETFLIX

yes.

ROCK CLIMBING

Only because I want to overcome my acrophobia.

FOOD

😀

SNOWBOARDING

Don’t get to do this much since there’s never winter where I live, but would seize the opportunity to play when I can.
