About Samantha

I'm a Singapore-based video producer, shooter and editor with a proven track record of producing highly-viewed digital video series covering news, health, science, arts and culture. Familiar with a range of production styles: studio, documentary, reality and animation. Most recently, I was a producer at New York Magazine, where I developed, conceptualized and executed video series, documentaries and studio shoots across the publication's verticals. These included The Cut (politics and women’s issues), Vulture (pop culture and the arts), and Intelligencer (news and politics). My videos garnered upwards of 6 million views on the flagship YouTube channel, significantly growing our audience. I took the lead on producing inaugural digital series for Facebook and Snapchat, with more than 200 million unique views on the latter platform. My work has been recognized by the Webby Awards and CineKink.
