My name is Mark and I am a Technical Lead at 99X Technology, a cutting edge software product engineering company which was adjudged as one of Asia’s Best Workplaces in 2018. Being a passionate engineer who loves coding, mentoring, and fueling technical innovation, I have over nine years of experience, working in locations ranging from Sri Lanka, Singapore, Japan, and Norway. My work has mainly dealt with full stack web development, distributed systems, Actor frameworks, reactive systems, event-sourcing, solution architecture, and a lot of Domain Driven Design.

Academically I am currently reading for my Masters degree in Big Data Analytics – conducting research on machine learning, big data processing pipelines, and developing a fascination towards computational astrophysics where big data is concerned. In my spare hours, I am an amateur astronomer (when time and sky permit) and a vintage computing/retro-games enthusiast.
