We’re a fun-loving team, working and playing hard all in the name of keeping you inspired, in the know, and getting the most out of your city – from the hottest new tables to the best boutiques, bars, weekend events and holiday destinations. You’re welcome.
Chris Edwards, Founder
Our fun and ballsy leader is the queen bee. She traded Sydney for Singapore eight years ago and started The Honeycombers because there was no publication she felt ‘spoke to her’. Honeycombers was born out of her desire to connect expats with the abundant fab local culture. She now has Singapore firmly ‘in the palm of her hands’ according to the Australian Financial Review, (yes that’s true!) And if it wasn’t for Chris, none of us would be doing this kick-ass job!
Hamish McDougall, Managing Director
Hamish has worked in media and marketing in Sydney, London and Singapore, starting in advertising and editorial before moving to the dark side (sales and business development). His experience runs the gamut from pre- and post-launch startups through to MNC media organisations, and most recently he was MD, APAC of airline media publisher Ink.
Hamish joined Honeycombers as Managing Director – but secretly wants to be the food & wine editor (man, that’s one helluva job). With a passion for both content and commercial, he’s happy to sit in the middle and take all the credit for both.
Sophie Cullen, Editor Honeycombers Hong Kong
Sophie traded mountains, sheep and hobbits for East Asia back in 2004, and she’s never looked back. After k-popping through South Korea, she landed in Hong Kong in 2013, where her weekends are spent scouring the city to add to her vinyl collection and trying to locate the perfect vegetarian dumpling.
Carly Wu, Editorial Assistant
Carly knows all about the underground music scene and the greatest 90s shoegaze bands, like Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine. She appreciates alternative culture and loves to debunk antiquated social norms. She’s also a vegan foodlover who is obsessed with both cooking and eating out.
Kristy Or, Partnerships Coordinator and Content Creator
Kristy was born and bred in Australia, living by the beautiful beaches in Sydney. She moved to Hong Kong in 2016 to rediscover her roots, and spends her weekends looking for vintage art pieces and drinking at traditional tea houses.
Anson Yip, Videographer and Photographer
Anson is fan of great visuals and draws inspiration from classic Cantonese films – especially those by Wong Kar Wai. When he’s not out and about in the city making videos for Honeycombers, you will find him either hiking, camping or enjoying tasty dim sum (he knows all the best spots!)
