As a freelance reporter based in Bangkok, I travel frequently around the world for stories on the garment and manufacturing sector, labor and migrant worker issues, and refugee issues. I'm lucky that my work has taken me to Bangladesh, Turkey, Mongolia and Myanmar – among many other countries – and some of it has appeared in Los Angeles Times, South China Morning Post, Al Jazeera, Women's Wear Daily, Buzzfeed and Global Post.

Previously, I was an associate editor and daily news reporter at The Cambodia Daily,
a research assistant for investigative reporter Wayne Barrett at The Village Voice, and an editorial and photo assistant at The New York Times Syndicate.
