About

Norm in a Nutshell:

Iban-Malaysian. TCK. Teller of Tales. Polymath in Progress.

Hello hello! You’ve read about me on the home page. Now for something a little personal:

I grew up in many different places: born Malaysian, lived in the Netherlands, Australia, and Japan. Now, I’m based in KL. After getting experience being Head of Marketing at a Japanese FinTech company (Malaysian Branch), I now focus on my own personal projects.

Sometimes, I’m at my thought blog, Grey Nautic. I write articles on there with the intention of teaching something new in many different fields. It’s made to teach others how to be like Da Vinci!

Outside of that, I’m a dancer, guitarist, and I speak multiple languages. I think in English and Japanese, and I am a sucker for a good steak.

In other times, I do creative work, such as fiction and narration. If you want to read more about my creative endeavours, check this page out!

What do I like:

  • Eustress — aka. beneficial stress. It’s the stress you gain from being with like-minded, energetic people who inspire and empower you.
  • Building new businesses and implementing creativity in them.
  • Being in the startup space — from blockchain to business automation, from new business models to connecting with entrepreneurs, it’s fun and exciting to always be on the forefront.
  • Creative Arts — anything that requires imagination.
  • Acting and Film — I have a small dream to be an actor. I love the stage!
  • Public speaking, performing — pretty much anything on stage!
  • Teaching and coaching others!
  • Adventures in all forms (eg. Indiana Jones, The Mummy, Explorer’s sketchbooks, Uncharted!)
  • A good old fashioned steak 🍖

What don’t I like:

  • Raisins (blergh)
  • Blue beetles (in a nutshell: some sort of allergic reaction to them 😢)
Look at this ugly mug!

That’s enough about me for now.

If you want to understand me more, I wrote my Vivid Vision: it tells you who I will be in the next few years!
