WMSers,

I'm Marx Melencio, and it's great to be here! :) Hope to contribute and participate in discussions here that could benefit our businesses — I'm also looking forward to forging mutually beneficial collaboration oppurtunities with others here. Anyway, please allow me to bore you with a few things about me... :)

I'm the founder and marketing communications strategist of Grayscale, a global ICT consulting company here in the Philippines; and

I've been completely blind for more than 11 years now, after being gunned down twice in 2003 while buying fried rice at a local food stall here in the Philippines. Thanks to assistive technology — My wife and I were able to build (literally from scratch) our now 9-year old ICT company, which employs other persons with disabilities in 20% of our workforce...

Our national government awarded me as the 2008 Most Inspiring Entrepreneur of the Philippines and one of the top 25 Filipino technopreneurs in 2014.

Well, "see" you at the forums! :)

Welcome To WMS,

I am glad you survived that terrible situation. Geezzz, can't go out to purchase some food without getting harmed :(

The flip side, sounds like you have made great strides and all your hard work paid off. Congratulations with your continued success! Glad to have you here on WMS!

Cheers to better days ahead!
