Salam! I am a journalist and a freedom of expression and religion advocate based in Putrajaya, Malaysia.

With over eight years of experience in journalism focusing on religion, human rights, SOGIE issues, and current affairs, I am currently a news editor at Kuala Lumpur-based Malay Mail.

I run a subscriber-only essay collection of Malaysian social media and pop culture #BeritaBaruNakUp, and co-founder of SHAZU Speaks that runs social audio chatrooms on news and current affairs in Clubhouse and Twitter Spaces.

I am also the East Asian representative of the International Association of Religion Journalists.

I am a humanist dad raising a daughter with my doctor soulmate. I love Deftones, sci-fi and fantasy, metalcore, anime, K-pop, hololive, gawking at architecture and history, and all kinds of good food.
