I thrive in the intersection of creative, community, and social change.
For more than a decade, I’ve worn multiple hats including content producer, marketer, and communications specialist working across grassroots non-profits to multinational media agencies. I am inspired by the power of storytelling for community-building and working alongside values-based organizations.
I draw from international experiences in digital, news and television production: In the Philippines, I produced stories as a Princeton-in-Asia media fellow with Rappler, under the leadership of renowned journalist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Maria Ressa. Following Typhoon Haiyan in 2013, I developed a post-disaster communications strategy at UN-Habitat and captured stories from the field of recovery and resilience. As a television producer in Singapore, I developed pitches, wrote, and produced regionally-televised documentary programs for major networks including National Geographic and Channel NewsAsia. The first television program I produced and directed (Singapore’s Finest) won ‘Best Sports Programme’ at the 2015 Asian Television Awards.
In my hometown of Vancouver, I’ve consulted on media projects for the City of Vancouver, served on the advisory group of the Chinese-Canadian Museum, and helmed the video production department of the David Suzuki Foundation. Most recently, I led the implementation of Prudential’s first regional, blended-learning program for 400,000 agents across 6 countries.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) is a topic close to my heart and in my current role as Board Co-Chair of the Laurier Institution. As a recent graduate of the Quantic School of Business and Technology EMBA program, I’m currently based in Singapore and exploring opportunities to drive DEI in SE Asia.
