A fluent speaker/writer in both English and Malay.
I am interested to develop a career in illustration or animation. I'm looking to gain as much experience and exposure to these fields as possible. This matters more to me than salary; pay is not an issue. I work well alone, as well as with other people.
I enjoy a variety of activities, including yoga, tennis, dancing, reading, writing, playing fantasy-type computer games and of course, drawing.
