WHAT I DO
Media + Technology
As Yahoo’s former editorial operations manager for India and Southeast Asia, I was responsible for connecting products and editorial teams and managing the news and information websites in the region.
A journalist by training and education, my passion and expertise in using technology to redefine media experiences makes me unique in the journalism industry.
Outside of Yahoo, I am one of the co-founders of the Singapore chapter of Online News Association, a non-profit membership organization for digital journalists.
