WHAT I DO
Digital Journalist with a 'Product' state of mind
I've worked in the media industry for almost a decade now and had various roles akin to the evolving nature of the digital landscape.
My 'Product' state of mind comes from my stint as Yahoo India and Southeast Asia's senior editorial operations manager based in Singapore where I was a key conduit between product and editorial teams responsible for creating and managing media experiences and internal publishing tools.
In 2016, I moved to Hong Kong to join CNN as its Social Publishing Producer where I'm part of a global team responsible for running and growing CNN's presence on social and mobile platforms.
Today, I worked with some of the biggest newsrooms in Asia on the use of CrowdTangle, a social analytics and discovery tool owned by Facebook.
