Chi-Loong suffers from an incurable disease called curse of the curious hybrid. He has a background in Computer Science, but somehow wandered into journalism, marketing and public relations. Past lives include mainstream and trade media, in-house and agency PR, energy and social media start-ups like Straits Times, British Telecoms and GolinHarris.
The corporate world is not really suited for hybrids so he decided to forge out and found V/R (www.vslashr.com), a niche agency that blends art + science to tell stories through technology: Data visualizations and interactive explorables.
Clients include GLCs like Temasek, and A*Star, MNCs like BASF, Fortinet, and SMBs and start-ups like Stalford.
Chi-Loong also helps run two meet-ups in Singapore on data visualization (Data Viz SG and Hacks/Hackers SG) and his passion project is Visualizing Singapore (viz.sg), a community ground-up site on data visualization on Singapore.
