ABOUT ME

They say some people are born to write. I don’t know if this is true, but I’ve loved reading and writing since I was a child. I know I live to write, and I believe in constantly evolving and learning to become a better writer, be it professionally or for my own passion projects. The only constant in life is change, and I thrive on it. 


Professionally, I’m a business and technology copywriter and editor based in Penang, with nearly two decades’ worth of experience as a journalist and writer. I’ve written for various local and regional media outlets, but my real passion is translating complex concepts into clear, concise and compelling copy for technology companies. This is why I left the media and became a contentpreneur. I believe that content truly is king and I enjoy helping my clients shine by leveraging on the power of the written word.


I'm also a creative writer and poet, an ENFJ and a dog and cat person. I’m midway through my first crime novel and I also dabble in mandala art when inspiration strikes. Look up my poetry and artwork on Instagram, at @artbysharmila.
