About

From self-made entrepreneur, freelance web developer, graphic designer, chef, DJ instructor, to technical specialist, Guinness World Record holder and music producer.

Since 2010, Haron Tay ventured into music production alongside talents such as Ianzy, IMVN, LoProv, Feeq, Swave/Emercy, DJ Paranoid and others across the globe.

In addition, Haron was invited to participate in the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest DJ Relay set by 133 DJs on the 9th of August 2014, performing at Mambo Beach Club’s Siloso Countdown.

In recent years, Haron launched and produced content for “The Interview”, a monthly series on Mixcloud aimed at exploring a variety of genres aside from his specialties.

Work History

Under the guidance of veteran chefs Derrick Lee and Alex Aw, Haron was taught from kitchen preparation works, understanding several cuisines, to managing a restaurant efficiently within the first year of his training.

  • Areas of expertise include – Knowledge including but not limited to Western/Japanese/Chinese (Zi Char) cuisine, menu planning, cost control, hospitality, general supervision, kitchen hygiene, able to handle banquets and caterings
  • Other information can be made available on request

Stemming from a childhood hobby of doodling on almost everything he saw, this notion led Haron to learn more about graphics designing, turning this leisure activity into a sideline. Combining this with his self-taught knowledge in I.T., he expanded into the web development field, which also explained how this site popped out of nowhere under 24 hours.

In late 1998, Haron received an old computer as a gift from his father, which he later caused his first fire incident when a pair of wires to the PC speaker got shorted. That sparked an interest in him to find out how it happened, leading him to explore the topic of I.T. on his own.

Fueled by his insatiable curiosity, Haron became an autodidact individual through countless trial-and-error, learning through others’ mistakes and actions. Growing up from a poverty-stricken family with no financial aid willing to help, he decided to leave school at the age of 16, and work on understanding the finer aspects of technology.

Haron is currently working on plans with supply chains across Southeast Asia to recollect unwanted electronics and computers for repairs, in a bid to provide highly affordable computing solutions to families with financial difficulties and others in need, as well as granting discarded items a new purpose.
