I am a husband, father and a executive professional (mechanical engineer) and find human potential to excel very fascinating. I strongly believe that mankind can achieve anything if we work together as one single organism.
My interests include tracking latest developments in social, cultural, economic, industrial, technology and strategic areas. Like to take a big picture view on how do all of these trends end up helping humanity in the long run.
A little bit more about myself, I have been in the U.S. for over 20+ years, was born and brought up on east Asia. Came to the “Land of the free” many years ago and now a fellow citizen. Since the beginning we have lived in and around the mid west region. Now based in and around Anoka County, Minnesota. At first living in MN presented it’s challenges but now we find the house arrest due to sub-zero temperatures and blizzards as a opportunity to connect with family and friends. County and State fairs allow us to re-experience the population density that we sometimes miss from back home … Lol
Since childhood I have enjoyed science, mathematics, engineering and travel. I am a big proponent of STEM in schools. Since the start of my professional career I been fortunate enough to have traveled the world, meeting new people, experiencing their culture and listening to their opinions and view points have allowed me to gain a comprehensive perspective on many topics.
We make all the efforts to visit our friends and family in east Asia every year or so. These visits also gives me a opportunity to record and understand how fast the developing countries are catching up to the rest of the world.
In this blog I will be tracking a wide variety of topics, issues and latest updates included but not limited to global economies, markets, industries, technologies, latest breakthroughs, etc.. will also be sharing a few of our family vacation photos. My background is from manufacturing industry and hence intend to stay focused on what has been the corner stone of civilization.
My passion is developing Voice of Customer focused culture, products and services that drive high degree of differentiation, results in a sustainable competitive advantage and build value for all stakeholders.
Golf and swimming are two of my hobbies, enjoy the family swim events at my daughters swim club in Osseo, Minnesota.
Please join me on this journey !
