EX: Biggest milestone in your life.
HIM: Won’t describe it as the biggest milestone of my life, but starting out on my own to build something of value to so many people is something I am proud of, besides building a great place to work and achieving what we have in an ethical manner.

EX: Book(s) that have influenced your life.
HIM: Lots of them. But in recent years ‘Sapiens and Homo Deus’ by Yuval Noah Harari has made an impression on my mind. The ‘Fountainhead’ by Ayn Rand is an all-time favourite, also ‘The Art of War.’

HIM: Psych and StarMaker

EXThe next product on your tech-wishlist.
