I am a film producer

born and based in Singapore.

I have produced short films, music videos and commercials,

 

and sometimes also production manage, and act / model.

I now work at Potocol.

Producing works

I was first introduced to the world of filmmaking on an exchange programme at NYU Tisch School of the Arts in 2017.

Since then, I've been fortunate to work with many inspiring, talented creatives, and was able to be a better producer by training at the Rotterdam Lab, Busan Asian Film School, and Full Circle Lab Philippines.
