Which law would you most like to change?
I would most like to change the current state of patent laws, particularly in the realm of medical and pharmaceutical breakthroughs. I believe that life-saving treatments and medications should be accessible and affordable to all, regardless of their financial situation. The involvement of legal teams in the medical process is slowing down the speed that researchers can complete their studies, meaning products take longer to get to market, and ever greater amounts of funding are required.
Who was your hero when you were growing up?
Growing up, my hero was my older sister. I saw her produce groundbreaking work in her own field, and her resilience in the face of many varied challenges inspired me then and continues to do so today. Every day I channel her spirit to develop my own passion for innovation and discovery in life and in the workplace.
By constantly thinking outside of the box, we can continue to support our customers and build our business.
What was your big career break?
Joining Sepura was my big career break – it gave me responsibility and a huge opportunity to develop myself and my career. I am lucky in that Sepura is of a good size to provide the necessary organisational back-up to achieve this, but still allows individuals room to flourish. Together, our small team in Asia punches above our weight to secure outstanding solutions sales across the region, and we all have a key role to play in this. Sepura has supported me in moving forward and taking my sales skills to the next level, broadening my horizons not only in terms of work, but also in my lifestyle.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Ha! Well, I still see myself as young and not grown up just yet. Ask me in another ten years!
If you had to work in a different industry, which would you choose?
I would want to become a veterinarian because I love dogs and cats especially, but animals in general. I considered training in this area, but eventually chose sales and I haven’t looked back (yet).
The Rolling Stones or the Beatles?
While I appreciate both bands, I’d have to choose Coldplay. They have a concert in Taiwan in 2023 which I have tickets for, and I can’t wait to go and see them. Their music is amazing, but also their live show, with the audience participation and use of technology, is amazing.
What would you do with £1 million?
I would definitely need to consult with my wife before making a decision… I can imagine she wants to build a cat house and have hundreds of pets in our house. While I would love this, I would also look into holidays around the world – when you travel as much as I do for work, you get to see the inside of so many hotels or airports. There are so many places I have been that I want to see properly, as well as Europe and Africa… and everywhere else! We are fortunate to live in such a diverse world with such an opportunity to explore.

Where would you live if money was no object?
A: I could set up a colony on Mars and could become a neighbor of Elon Musk! Of course, we would have to take the cat house with us…
What’s the greatest technological advancement in your lifetime?
Thanks to AirTag, I can now keep track of my belongings and avoid losing them anywhere. Again, when you travel, use remote offices, airports, and hotels, it is so easy to leave things behind. AirTag has saved me a fortune and reduced any anxiety about losing expensive technology. They are a brilliant tech addition!
