I’m a media practitioner from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. When I’m not working, I experiment on new business ideas, dabble in side projects and write fiction.

In the business of media

I started my career as a journalist at The Star newspaper, Malaysia’s largest English daily, at a time when news was beginning to move from print to digital. Which means that I have a healthy nostalgia for hard copies, as well as a deep love for new forms of media.

It’s been over five years since I left journalism and since then, I’ve worked in corporate responsibility, web development and e-commerce. My roles may have been diverse but my job has always been in media.

My work has always involved content — consuming it, creating it, using it. If you want to know how you can use content to drive your business, get in touch.

The humans gave those little fragments their own names and forgot that they were onceContinue reading “Becoming Better Humans”
