Writing

My first (and only) front page byline in The Washington Post,  May 29, 1990

I’ve been writing since I was small, and making a living from it since 1986. At first my interest was politics, particularly anything to do with Southeast Asia, but at Reuters and then at The Wall Street Journal I also wrote about business, economics, environment and social issues.

Since the late 1990s I’ve turned more to technology and innovation, which has been a challenge because I was lousy at science and maths. Maybe that’s the appeal; if I can understand something well enough to write about it, then I should be able to do it in a way that makes it palatable to anyone.

Nowadays I write weekly columns for several publications, including The Wall Street Journal’s Online and Asian editions. I also write the content for the annual Asian Innovation Awards and the Global Entrepolis in Singapore awards. I also write a blog.

I’m always open to discussing writing assignments with other outlets, whether on technology or other issues. For more on that feel free to contact me.
