Hi there! Welcome to my playground. I’m Norm 🙂

ThatsTheNorm (or TTN for short) that houses all the content I create: articles, podcasts and videos. They all go against the norm.

I’m Anti-Niche: If you’re a fan of covering a wide range of topics as podcasts and articles, and want to think about something new/different everyday, this is the place for you 😄

Some example articles cover polymaths, business, cryptocurrency, and self-development. The podcasts themselves range from intimate interviews to short story fiction, narrative history, reporting on the Asian podcasting scene and even daily shows. Start here if you’re ready!


What would you call yourself?

I’ve always had a problem with this question.

Many of us hit that barrier when it comes to identifying ourselves. It doesn’t matter if it’s by label, purpose or field of interest, anything that we find fascinating becomes part of our lives. We play around and fall in love with it, stress over it, and accept as part of who we are.

We find out more about who we are by discovering more about what we like to do.

I do the following:

This is me:

I’m on a mission to deconstruct wisdom from all walks of life so we can understand ourselves and each other better.

I strive to be a polymath in progress:

  • I blend creativity, art, and imagination into my career.
  • I start projects and businesses and boost them with creative works.
  • I market products, write narratives, and add value through storytelling.

I inject ‘fun’ into everything really! I have two sides:

Media and Appearances





If all is well...

Let’s get right into it!
