I am an independent writer and audio producer contributing to Australian, Japanese and other international media organisations.

I have worked for major news organisations in Tokyo and Sydney, including NHK (Japan’s public broadcaster), The New York Times Tokyo Bureau, The Nihon Keizai Shimbun (Japan’s main economic daily).

I have a Masters degree in International Relations from The University of New South Wales and a Social Work degree from the University of Melbourne.

Prior to becoming a journalist, I was a sexuality/health educator and community worker mainly working with young people in Sydney.

Born in New Delhi, India, I now reside in Sydney, Australia.
