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 an intern for 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.
