This page is intended to be a professional portal and a (largely) static archive of my past journalistic work. Future projects will be archived here on an ad-hoc basis.
I was based in Yangon, Myanmar from 2012 until mid-2016. The vast majority of my work was dedicated to investigating and documenting this turbulent and fast-changing period in Myanmar's history, with its tentative steps towards democratisation, ethnic and religious discord, and commercial interests - both foreign and domestic - looking for their share of the spoils.
I was formerly the deputy editor of Frontier Myanmar, a weekly magazine focused on current affairs and business.
Before joining Frontier, I was the Myanmar correspondent for the now-defunct Edge Review, a regional spin-off of Malaysia's financial paper of record founded by former staff of esteemed regional publications including the Far Eastern Economic Review, Asian Wall Street Journal, and AsiaWeek.
I also reported for the Democratic Voice of Burma between 2013 and 2015, and was the first non-Burmese writer for the formerly-exiled network to be based inside Myanmar itself.
In June 2014, my work with The Edge Review was awarded the 2014 Excellence in Human Rights Reporting award by the Society of Publishers in Asia, part of a package on Buddhist nationalism in Southeast Asia.
I also delivered media skills trainings for a wide range of beneficiaries, as well as commercial due diligence / investigations / political risk analysis on a freelance basis.
