About me

I have over 27 years’ experience in the publishing industry in the US and Singapore in magazines (consumer and trade) as well as a newspaper. I have also done a stint in public relations, have published several books, and taught feature writing and writing communication at a polytechnic. I have been the editor of some of the magazines I have worked for, and have also founded two magazines and two e-magazines.
