Effectively bilingual and fluent in Mandarin, I’m a journalist particularly interested in the nexus of money and power. Last in Beijing covering the political economy of China’s aerospace and other industrial sectors for Bloomberg News, I was previously writing about the country’s financial markets for Reuters from Hong Kong. My interest in money and politics was piqued in my time as a reporting fellow with Los Angeles Times in Washington, where I was introduced to campaign finance coverage.
I’m an alum of the Columbia Journalism School and the National University of Singapore, where I was part of the elite University Scholars Program and co-founded the Southeast Asian city-state’s first editorially-independent campus online newspaper. The Umbrella Movement of 2014 on the streets of Hong Kong was a major career highlight.
