Hi, I’m Jasmin. A writer and editor with over two decades of publishing experience, I have a bachelor’s of science in animal biology from the National University of Singapore and a master of science in biomedical journalism from New York University.
Until recently, I was the founding managing editor of Ecouterre, an ethical-fashion website that was not only regarded as groundbreaking in 2009 but also gained a significant following in its seven-plus-change years of existence.
I juggled a coterie of stringers, packaged stories, managed multiple forms of social media, played graphic designer, dispatched a weekly newsletter, and spoke at length at a number of expert panels. (Here’s one I did with H&M and Vogue.)
In 2015, I received an award for my work.
My passions and expertise include the apparel industry’s social and environmental impact, fibers and textiles, biomaterials, and wildlife science.
I’ve also written about politics, technology, climate change, comic books, and green design and architecture. The New York Times once quoted me as an expert on ethical pet ownership (#NBD).
I’m a voracious tea drinker.
I live in New Jersey with my husband and daughter. We hope to get another cat soon—two if we’re feeling dangerous.
