I draw comics

I draw non-fiction slice-of-life comics set in Beijing and Singapore. Follow my latest stories here.

I report stories

I write longform features on the creative life of Asian cities. I write and curate videogame criticism. Read my work here.

I promote shows

I work for a China-based music promoter with some of the best underground bands in Asia. Come to our annual music festival!

I'm interested in contemporary culture, independent music and pan-Asian politics. Maybe we can work together on something?

My Portfolio

Open All the Buddha Boxes

My first book-length comic is a panoramic, parallax history of Beijing's music underground from 1999-2019 - the bands that defied, then defined, the city. Forthcoming 2021!

Quarantine Cooking

A comic for The New Yorker on cooking under the COVID-19 quarantine in China, and the emergence of a wildly imaginative new cuisine driven by boredom and disquiet.

Redemption Songs

A longform comic for Topic Magazine about the fascinating intertwined musical histories of China and Jamaica, illustrated through the transcendental riddim of reggae.

The Last Grand Fallible Plan

The Last Grand Fallible Plan is a comic book about independent music in Singapore of the 1960s. It was released online as a pay-what-you-want comic, and is available in Singapore bookstores.

Estilo Hindu

In Pursuit of Ambedkar

I was a Production Assistant on an hour-long documentary about Bhagwan Das, an associate and archivist of the life of B.R. Ambedkar, India's first Law Minister and anti-caste activist.
