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 four-year stint as Yahoo India and Southeast Asia's senior editorial operations manager based in Singapore. In this role, I'm a key conduit between product and editorial teams and responsible for creating and managing media experiences and internal publishing tools.
In October 2016, I will be joining CNN in Hong Kong as Social Publishing Producer, where I'll be part of a global team responsible for growing CNN's presence on social and mobile platforms.
Outside of work, I am one of the co-founders of the Singapore chapter of Online News Association, a non-profit membership organization for digital journalists.
