What creative work do you do?
I write about subjects I think (or hope) people will care about.
What’s the best part of what you do?
The options are endless as to the content I create; I’ll never run out of ideas.
What’s the hardest part?
The options are endless as to the content I create; I always run out of ideas. Somehow. The internet’s so damn effective that seemingly everything has been covered, y’know?
And also, imposter syndrome.
What are some of the things you’re obsessed with right now?
Iced black tea, riddled with an unhealthy amount of sugar. In Singapore, it’s known as Teh O Peng. I drink at least three cups of it daily.

What are you working on now that’s exciting for you?
An upcoming zine called Relics: it’ll uncover stories about murder, death and overall horrors from the bygone eras. The first issue ‘Vanity’ will encompass catastrophic stories in cosmetics that history has seen.
A lethal poison, Aqua Tofana, was disguised as makeup products and used to kill hundreds of men—and that’s just one of the examples. Horrific, yes. But so incredibly fascinating.
Stickers and art prints will be released alongside the physical zine for purchase, and there’ll be a limited print run. Very niche and I doubt anyone will buy them but hey, if it’s what fuels my drive, amirite?
