I champion communities and tell stories.
Be it through text, photo, video, sound or graphics, my goal is simple: to observe, document and relate to whoever's lending a listening ear. From simple coding to documentaries, I hope my efforts in storytelling and community engagement transcend mediums and conventions.
I'm fortunate to have worked on some video journalism projects - these include hosting the Summer360 livestream on RINGS.TV, as well as various video assignments for Popspoken, Yahoo! Singapore and xinmsn (then MSN Singapore).
I've also written for news platforms including Deutsche Press Agency, Coconuts Singapore, xinmsn, Channel NewsAsia, Yahoo! Singapore and Campus Magazine.
"When it comes to voting, there is what is called the Whip, meaning you have to vote in accordance with what the Government decides, otherwise you can’t run a Government if everyone can vote whichever way they want, which is why we have political stability. And political stability is what delivered our success." - K Shanmugam
I have also been in front of the camera, giving opinions across a wide cross-section of events in the media, youth and LGBT sectors.
BUSINESS, PRODUCT MANAGEMENT & CONSULTING
I work as a content and social media marketer with Singapore freelancer portal Beehivee, providing content marketing advice and planning for brands keen to tap into the power of their communities through storytelling and collective action.
I also manage business operations and product development for Popspoken, a Singapore culture news website to help over 20,000 millennials and young professionals understand their local community with exclusive reports and interviews with up-and-coming cultural changemakers.
I am also part of the founding team of Prout, an LGBTQ+ community networking and support platform for LGBTQs to connect to their local community through interest groups, self-improvement events and customised legal, medical and social welfare support.
