About Me

I am a contributing writer for The Atlantic based in Singapore reporting primarily on politics, societal change and tech news in the region. My work has also appeared in The Washington Post, WIRED Magazine, Foreign Policy, The New Yorker, Prospect Magazine and numerous other international publications.

I'm the co-author of the forthcoming book, Among the Braves: Hope, Struggle, and Exile in the Battle for Hong Kong and the Future of Global Democracy And I was the principal reporter for Dynamite Doug, an investigative podcast from Project Brazen.

I was part of a team at The Washington Post that won the 2020 Human Rights Press Award for investigative feature writing and the Kam Yiu-yu Press Freedom Award for a report on the misuse of force by the Hong Kong police during pro-democracy protests. I was a finalist for the 2021 Livingston Award for International Reporting for work in The Atlantic examining Beijing's crackdown on Hong Kong. In both 2020 and 2021, I won Best in Business awards from the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing for pieces looking at the erosion of free press in Hong Kong.


I was a finalist for the 2019 Livingston Award for International Reporting for features in WIRED on Facebook and WhatsApp's operations in Myanmar and India.


From 2015 until 2017, I worked as a reporter for Reuters news agency based in Yangon and Chicago. Prior to that, I worked for The Myanmar Times newspaper in Yangon. 


A selection of my articles appears on this website. Please feel free to get in touch.
