Experienced broadcast and digital journalist who can file for TV as well as print and online platforms. This includes doing live hits, phoners, TV packages as well as writing up features and breaking news articles. I've reported from the frontlines of major local and international news events in addition to interviewing major personalities - from the Malaysian Prime Minister, Dr Mahathir Mohamad, to sports figures like Usain Bolt. Notably, I reported on Malaysia's 13th and 14th historic general elections, the 1MDB scandal, the MH370, MH17 and QZ8501 plane tragedies, the assassination of Kim Jong Nam, Malaysia's first IS-linked grenade blast, the floods in the East Coast of peninsular Malaysia, the ASEAN Summits in Kuala Lumpur as well as the visits of world leaders such as US President Barack Obama to Malaysia. I've also spoken to ministers, CEOs, community leaders and more for investigative pieces, features and daily news reports for both TV and digital platforms. I'm a big believer in using social media for journalism, particularly Twitter - where I've built up a solid follower base and reputation for breaking news quickly but accurately. I'm fluent in English, Malay and conversational Indonesian.
