Hello! I'm a producer, strategist and photographer with a decade of experience working in social media and journalism with an extensive knowledge of Asia/Pacific.

I spent 11 years at CNN, where I helped launched CNN iReport, CNN's participatory journalism project. I also led's Asia/Pacific team based in Hong Kong. Most recently, I was Communications Manager at Instagram, based in San Francisco.

I have more than 500K followers on Instagram. My brand influencer work includes projects for Toyota, Travel Alberta, The Canadian Tourism Commission and GANT Rugger. My photography has been featured in several online publications and my prints have been featured in mobile photography exhibits, including the 100-50-1 show in San Francisco.

I co-founded HK Instayay, and organized the first ever InstaMeet in Hong Kong. I helped lead more than 20 Instagram photo walks during my time there and in 2012 gave a TedX talk about my experience.
