About Nithin

I am a Asia-focused freelance journalist, focusing on stories that build connections across borders, particularly in Southeast Asia, a vitally important region of the world that does not get enough attention in the English-language media. See my portfolio for some of my published features.

Prior to working as a journalist, I worked in advocacy communications and campaigns for organizations including the Walk Free Foundation, Sierra Club, Obama for America, Peace Action, and Kehati.  

I received my Bachelors in Communication from the University of Southern California, and my Masters in International Affairs from Columbia University. I split my time between bases in the San Francisco Bay Area, Japan, and Indonesia (go to this page to see where I am now, and where I’m going.)

I’m actively seeking new outlets to work with, especially on stories focused on interconnections within Asia, or between Asia and other parts of the world. If you’re an editor, or a fellow journalist interested in collaborating, please contact me via social media, or through the form below.
