Elle Kwan is a British freelance writer/ editor based in Hong Kong. She writes food, travel, parenting and entertainment for South China Morning Post, Discovery magazine, Jet Star, Prestige Hong Kong and Tatler
Since moving to Hong Kong 8 years ago, i've covered everything from secret drinking spots to profiles of Hong Kong's big political leaders. I write predominantly profiles and feature stories related to lifestyle; food, celebrity, travel, fashion, design and kids.
My interviews are diverse and include international names like fashion designer Diane Von Furstenburg, London architect Thomas Heatherwick, and author Jung Chang. In Asia, profiles have included awarded music personalities like Karen Mok and G.E.M to Hong Kong Chief Executive C.Y. Leung.
I have written extensively on the food scene across the Asia Pacific, from fine dining to the local organic movement, and have a strong stable of contacts in this area.
During time as a staffer on several Hong Kong-based magazines, and then during the last four years freelancing i've built up a solid network. I'm known for delivering quality stories always on deadline.
