About

Growth marketer, podcast host & producer, speaker, and lifelong learner.

Hello there, I'm Niki. I have 12+ years of experience in communications; from taglines to feature writing, from radio scripts to email campaigns. Growing up, I wrote poems, short stories, musicals, plays, and personal essays.

While my heart lives for storytelling and words, it wasn't till a few years ago that I realised data and analytics is what feeds my soul. If you were to put art and science together, this is it.

It took me more than a decade to realise that I am a writer, and then years of peeling away at limiting beliefs to fully embrace the data nerd in me. Now I'm on Data Camp, currently enrolled in a college-level programming course, and working my way towards becoming entrenched in the world of data analytics.

My Writing

I write mainly about growth marketing, data analytics, and how to bridge that gap with a lifelong love affair for learning.


Work Life

I’m currently Director of Growth at Airalo, the world's first eSIM store that's on a mission to make travel data more accessible.

Previously, I was with Skyscanner, a global travel tech company, and before that I earned my stripes—to become what we now know as a T-shaped employee—working in agencies of various sizes and specialities: Ogilvy, Text1oo (now called Archetype), Hive Consulting, and Goodstuph.

Extra-Curricular

a) Deepening my practice and currently enrolled in a 200-hour yoga teacher training.

b) Working my way towards applying for a graduate degree in analytics to start school in the spring, January 2021. Currently enrolled in CS1301 as a pre-requisite.

c) Mentoring the next wave of podcasting women under Project Voice, as well as a fresh group of startups for the Iterative VC accelerator program. Both happening this summer, July 2020.


Other Projects

On a mission to raise the voices of Asian women. Starting with the podcast that I produce and host called Chief Best Friends, a show about mixing friendship and business together.
