Hello.

I am a Hong Kong-based reporter for Quartz, covering Asia business and geopolitics. You can see my work here.

Previously, I worked for a year as a freelance reporter. I wrote for the New York Times, Washington Post, South China Morning Post, CityLab, Quartz, and other publications. Prior to that, I spent seven months at the Washington Post in Washington, DC.

Below is a list of some work. For a more complete selection, check out my portfolio.
