Biographical Note
My strength is my ability to write in simple, clear terms to bring the reader into my features and stories.

I have a positive mindset and can adapt well and write for other media and produce what the reader requires without problems. I listen to my clients’ requirements and I take instructions well.

I am widely travelled, having lived in several countries before settling in New Zealand for over a decade. This exposure has added much value to my writing style and perspective.

I was born in Singapore and with English as my first language, write clearly and simply. My ability to draw my readers into my writing is mainly due to my understanding of my reading audience.

My diverse multicultural environment and friends, extensive travels, natural curiosity, interest in various subjects and a healthy respect for diverse cultures have resulted in my refreshing perspective that shows up in my work.
