Based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia after several years in Myanmar

I'm a five-time Emmy nominated video/multiplatform journalist covering Southeast Asia from modern cities to remote villages. I also train local television and digital video journalists in the region. I've reported for international news outlets including Deutsche Welle, Reuters Broadcast, VOA, BBC and My assignments include covering the stateless Rohingya Muslim community and the Myanmar pro-democracy movement's struggle against the military before as well as after last year's coup. I cover foreign affairs, social issues, politics, economics, natural disasters and human interest stories. I earned a master's degree from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. I've traveled across Southeast Asia on board rickety buses, leaky riverboats and standing-room-only trains.
