He has been a journalist with Singapore Press Holdings since 1983. He has held various jobs, including page design, sub-editing, magazine work and running a photo desk. But his real passion is writing, specifically about motoring and transport. This passion led him to do a Master of Science in Urban Transport Management with Singapore University of Social Sciences at 50. He is Senior Transport Correspondent with The Straits Times, and has been running a weekly motoring section since 1989.
