After working for almost a year, I quit my job and went back to school to fulfill my childhood dream of living in New York City. On top of doing advertising and design, I also make Soul/R&B music under the moniker Slodown. Check out my tunes on Spotify.

After helping to win the Changi Hackathon for JWT, I was put on the team re-pitching for the Changi Airport account while still working on day to day Changi projects.
