I began my Editorship at CLEO Malaysia in April 2016, and was Editor for its print and digital platforms up until April 2020, when CLEO ceased publication and operations.
During my time at CLEO, I managed the editorial calendar and line-up for the print magazine and handled all aspects of the digital sphere for CLEO Malaysia. I was part of the design revamp of the brand and on top of rolling out innovative projects and attention-grabbing content, the team and I also co-created and hosted our very own YouTube talk show, CLEOBuzz.
Prior to that, I co-founded my own fashion jewellery brand and spent years in legal editing and research, as well as administrative work at a Melbourne legal office.
I am a graduate of The University of Melbourne with a double degree in Law and Arts (Media & Communications). I also constantly keep up-to-date with online coursework in various disciplines.

Life + Beyond!
Prior to our Restricted Movement and our lives turning into the "New Normal", I loved keeping busy with my son with so many activities. Now that the world has turned inward, I'm increasingly intrigued by bodywork, yoga and self-development. I still like to keep active by swimming, skating, reading, doodling, plugging into a podcast, or producing videos for my Instagram.
