Who is Aung?

I am a businessman and self-employed techie with a background in enterprise system development. I did some business in different countries before settling in Australia. Technology is one of my main interests, and I have always been interested in how it can help businesses. That’s why I enjoyed researching and developing new businesses with new applications. I’m passionate about my work and know how to do the job. I would describe myself as an open and honest person who tries to be fair in everything I do. In addition to business, I enjoy playing golf and meditation because they help me relax and stay focused.
