"mastering a whole new level of creative space"

I am a poet, singer and space-opener. I open spaces with my poems, songs and performances. I open spaces through my work as a guide and shamanic technologist. I open spaces with carefully-planned ceremonies. The work I do transcends and yet is fully integrated into the material, and 

I cannot wait to share it with you.


My performances have featured at events like TEDx Singapore, Wonderfruit and Q Berlin Questions, and have shared stages with poets like Sarah Kay, Luka Lesson and Yomi Sode.

My poems have been invited to festivals like the Barcelona International Poetry Festival and the Queensland Writers Festival and won me poetry slams in Singapore, New Zealand, Germany and Australia. In my time as an artist I've been invited as resident to institutions such as Literarisches Colloquium Berlin and The Watermill Center.

As a writer - my poetry and prose has been published by The Straits Times, Math Paper Press, Guernica, and Penguin Random House and I've put 3 of my own books out - you can find a couple of them in the writing section.

Ever since I was a little girl, I absolutely had to sing. In terms of music, I've made a number of albums and sound works, most recently with Mantravine and Polymorphism.

I am also a founding co-organiser at Opens, a para-academic forum which seeks to catalyse open, critical conversations across local cultures and contexts. Co-creating with aligned community drives me. Collaboration is the future of widespread change.

In recent years, I have been most influenced by shamanic research, political and feminist discourse, and esoteric practice as the key to my personal revolution. In the world I inhabit there is no division between the 'physical' and the 'spiritual'. This world is ours to know.


Have a look at my coaching, guidance and technologist work at Elevated Expression to learn more about how I serve through unseen realms - if any of this talk resonates with you.
