hello there. i’m an editor, translator, and writer. here’s more of what i invest my time in doing.

I create content for digital communications, editorial platforms and multi-channel marketing. I’ve worked with Twitter, Uniqlo, PayPal and Prime Minister’s Office, and contribute most regularly to High Net Worth and SilverKris magazine. You can view more of my work here.

My previous day job as a Senior Digital Copywriter in PayPal’s international HQ also centred around writing SEO-optimised and cross-channel copy for APAC markets.

I translate. Specifically from Mandarin Chinese into English. Unlike machine translation, I carry a sensitivity to nuance, tone and context. I translate poetry, commercial commissions, and have exhibited on the creative process behind translation.

I try to maximise my skills to help. Especially for socially-conscious initiatives that empower minority voices and ground-up volunteerism. I’ve been involved in different capacities from marketing and media outreach, to events planning and press campaigns.

like you, i’m also human.

Curiosity, challenges, and cognisance are values I live by. I love to learn from a broad range of resources and carry a perspective that comes from living in 5 countries. You can also read the musings and thought starters I’ve written on everything from workplace productivity to A.I. and yoga on this website (and I’d love to hear your thoughts on them!)

A digital introduction is also useful but limited. So why not say hello?
