Freelance journalist in Singapore reporting on creative communities and politics around Southeast Asia. Sometimes, I go by the pseudonym of ‘Nisa Kreems.’

Previously, I covered Asian geopolitics at CNBC for seven years and now contribute to VICE, Bandcamp, Mixmag and others.

Whether I'm writing about emerging musicians, subversive entrepreneurs or regional elections, my features strive to connect the dots between culture, history and current events.
