I’m a journalist who writes about technology, race, the arts, media, and culture. My focus is combining a tri-continental background, news reporter’s rigor, and experience in cultural criticism to write feature stories driven by big ideas.

Based in New York City, my freelance work has been published by the AP and NBC News among others, and I’ve worked with Asian-American media like Banana Magazine and 88rising. I am currently associate features editor at Engadget, covering technology’s impact on culture and society.

I covered media as a staff writer at the Columbia Journalism Review, where my reporting was cited by outlets including The New York Times, Bloomberg and The Huffington Post. My features included a magazine cover story on the rise of Vice Media, and a profile of Ta-Nehisi Coates.

At Reuters, I was a reporter and lead writer for the award-winning digital project on China’s political leadership, Connected China. Previously, I was a staff reporter covering legal affairs at the South China Morning Post, Hong Kong’s top English-language newspaper.

Raised in the UK and Hong Kong, I graduated with an MA in Arts & Culture Journalism from Columbia University, winning the 2014 Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship for cultural criticism.
