“With roots nowhere, I have everywhere to go.” – Elif Safak
Having lived in Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore and India, I am a long-term expatriate (n. a person who lives outside their native country) who is seeking a career in media and communications focusing on topics related to social justice, race, discrimination, international news, technology and other relevant issues. Although primarily an editor, I can report from the ground using both video and text.
I am a fluent speaker in five languages and I am looking to learn Mandarin and Cantonese. My family is currently based in Indonesia while my alma mater is the National University of Singapore so I have strong ties to both Southeast Asian countries.
Previously an assistant editor at FOX Sports Asia, a sub-editor at MediaCorp’s TODAY newspaper and an intern at the Jakarta Post, I am now based in Hong Kong. I have also worked at a nonprofit in India carrying out marketing and related duties and worked as an independent film producer in Singapore.
