My first big assignment was for the Associated Press, covering the Hong Kong Umbrella Revolution in 2014. I also reported the protests live on Twitter for @hkdemonow. After these tumultuous events of the city, I assisted in the production of a French TV documentary Enquête Exclusive, about billionaires, haunted real estate, triads, drugs and wildlife trafficking in Hong Kong.
I have written about the largest modern human migration of China, and the other on the country’s burgeoning sex dolls market and subculture for AFP. I have 40+ bylines for a regional French paper called Le Pays d’Auge, on a range of topics from stinky seagulls, professional polo players, tightrope walkers and so on. A deep Google search with my name might lead you to a blog on female masturbation.
Random facts about me include a philosophy and sociology degree from France, years of classical ballet training, sailing across the North Sea during one of the largest European races, and a winning debate on why children should not be told fairy tales. I have a soft spot for cats, raccoons, or any soya product. I speak fluent Cantonese, Mandarin, English and French.
Recently, I am busy spending time to bond with my sources. Otherwise, I try to hammer out a 5000-word investigation so I can graduate from the Columbia Journalism School.
