I report from the ground and write news, culture, and travel features, as well as longform essays and narrative nonfiction. My work has appeared, or is forthcoming, in Virginia Quarterly Review, CNN, Washington Post, Public Radio International, Slate, Roads and Kingdoms, Vice Asia, South China Morning Post, Mekong Review, New Naratif, Esquire Malaysia, and The Malaysian Insider.
I’ve told stories about migration, cities, subcultures, cultural survival, environmental and human-wildlife conflict, criminal justice, and the legacies of war—often animated by the politics of identity. On a more intimate level, I’m drawn to the human struggle for visibility, autonomy, redemption, and survival.
Based in Kuala Lumpur and sometimes in London, I’m also looking for international reporting opportunities to better understand the interconnections of our world. >>
