Having enough money to make my way, I started
venturing into hardware. I started by creating a product called
Arbiter - a rapid fire controller for the
Playstation. I built it by programming the
Microchip PIC chips in assembly firstly, then C. I sold them online via an
online shop I coded from scratch.
The Arbiter was selling so well that I started
expanding the online retail store into LEDs, screw drivers, hardware, health and beauty,
electronics and more.
Within 18 months I went from working at home to having
2 buildings and 17 employees at the busiest period.
At the same time, my other software venture with my close friend and business partner also took off,
in a big way. I had no choice but to
sell the online retail business and focus on the software venture.
Over the following years my knowledge in software and hardware blossomed and I have a very broad
yet complete knowledge in almost every software language out today, with a rapidly growing skillset
in hardware design. I've worked with games, mobile apps, websites, commercial and industrial
apps, military, mass market and many other areas.
