Hi, I'm Dharma.

I love space, dinosaurs, science, watches, music, and photography. I enjoy helping and empowering others. I value curiosity and honesty.

Here are some of the things I do:

- I'm a technology, intellectual property, and personal data protection lawyer at BR Law. I enjoy helping clients with complex technology contracts, privacy issues, as well as navigating uncharted regulatory waters relating to emerging technologies. I work with a wide range of client-types, including MNCs, investors, and cutting-edge start-ups.

- I serve as the Co Vice-Chair of the Information Technology Committee of the Law Society of Singapore. Under the auspices of the Law Society, I started a series of confidential discussion sessions for senior and managing practitioners to share how Covid impacted their firms and challenges and successes using technology to adapt. A key driver for me was recognizing that leadership can be lonely/isolating and affect mental health. The sessions aim to demonstrate to participants that they are not alone in facing these challenges. The sessions have been well received and fully subscribed within 6 - 24 hours.

- I recently helped to set up Sing-Viet Impact Ventures, and serve on its founding executive committee. SVIV is a business federation focused on helping SMEs from Singapore and Vietnam establish business in both countries.

- In my limited free time, I shoot photos and make music. I'm a published photographer with over 8 years of experience, as well as a published musician with over 30 years of music experience. Music that I have written and performed is archived with the National Library and National Archives of Singapore.

- I serve on the council of The Music Society of Singapore, a registered charity. We have launched initiatives to help performing musicians and production crews with financial assistance during Covid due to restrictions on live performances.

- I co-founded The Wedding Scoop, a publisher of wedding content in the Asia-Pac region, and BRIEFCASE, a subscription-based confidential document storage service. The Wedding Scoop was the subject of a global case study by Pinterest Business.

- I'm currently working on a personal project called BEGIN: Black Equality Goes International. This site provides resources about racial discrimination in America, and I am working on updating it to share resources about racism in Asian contexts.
