Jen grew up dividing his time between Malaysia and New Zealand, settling in Auckland to attend Auckland University where he graduated with a BE (Hons) in Mechatronics Engineering, a combination of mechanical and electronics engineering.
In his final year Jen did a Building Services elective. When his lecturer suggested fire engineering had a big future he knew then exactly where he wanted to be.
For Jen, Origin’s leadership in passive fire safety provides him with a perfect opportunity to follow his passion and he has already learned ‘heaps’ working on one of Auckland’s biggest hotels. He’s also helped build passive fire safety solutions into one of Ponsonby’s most challenging apartment complexes.
Jen says “I am in the right place to become an expert in passive fire safety and make it my number one priority”
In his spare time Jen plays badminton and runs for fitness.
