His passion for dogs and the nagging feeling that dog owners are shortchanged led him to launch Singapore’s largest organized pet services directory called Singapaws. He is also a certified dog trainer.

When not enjoying nautical pursuits; he is pounding a little black ball on a squash court in a futile attempt to keep fit.
