Part-time Sunday League footballer and Chef. Former reporter @ The Straits Times Sports Desk.

What was your first job as a journalist?

I was assigned to the sports desk of the national newspaper - The Straits Times. I was sent out to cover a school hockey final.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

No but I have always wanted to get one!

How is social media changing news?

It's becoming more amplified and quick. Consequently, readers have to discern to avoid succumbing to the echo chamber effect.
