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 & Managing Director
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!
Crystal Lee, Digital Lead
Crystal thinks “hipster” is a dirty word, but secretly loves vinyls, gritty industrial interiors, pompadours, under-the-radar cult labels and books. Before this job, Crystal worked at large local publishing stables where she garnered loads of expert knowledge across topics that are very close to our hearts such as food, drink, fashion, art and events.
Allie Spencer, Account Manager
Originally from the Windy City, Allie moved to Singapore last year after a two-year stint in London. She has a background in marketing spirit brands and as a result appreciates a wee dram of whisky now and again! She loves a bargain and is avid about sports and fitness – she met her husband on a ski trip and they later got engaged on a chairlift. Boom!
Kate Reynolds, Account Manager
Kate is a travel addict from America who’s been happy to call the little red dot her home for the past five years. She’s lived in some of the world’s coolest cities including New York, London and Shanghai and thinks Singapore just gets cooler by the day. Formerly a client of Honeycombers, she was pulled in by the hip vibe and now gets to help out a range of Honeycombers’ partners.
Melanie Bonnet, Account Manager
Having always been in the know about hot, new places in town and on top of the coolest travel experiences in Asia, Melanie’s move from marketing and communication at a tech company into account management at Honeycombers felt like a natural one. Melanie has been studying Mandarin for five years and aims to visit every country on the planet (she’s hit 41 so far!). She’d also love to, er, hug the bears at Singapore Zoo.
Aliff Tee, Graphic Designer
Aliff is the to-go person for all things visual at the Honeycombers. Besides delving into the world of arts and design, he’s also into exploring the jungles of Singapore to expand his insect taxidermy collection. His burning passion in the world of DOTA 2 (Defense of the Ancients) keeps him up all night. But we forgive him because he’s the only bloke in the team and needs to let off steam somehow.
Kevin Ho, Editor of Honeycombers Singapore
Kevin is a sprightly individual and a self-confessed Otaku. Perk-him-ups include getting hopelessly lost in a foreign land, stuffing himself silly with curry rice, and underground techno shindigs that aren’t particularly good for one’s health.
Sally Shoult, Creative Services Editor
Sally is a peppy, undersized Londoner who relocated to Singapore in 2014, Sally ditched her career in the corporate world to pursue a more creative path six months ago. When she’s not eating and drinking her way around the island, Sal can be found playing football, wake boarding, frolicking abroad or hanging with her dog, Buddy.
Nafeesa Saini, Lifestyle Writer
Nafeesa spends weekends scouring the city for all things hot and new and curating Spotify playlists. She’s usually spotted running off to lunchtime fitness classes, prancing around with a flower crown at EDM festivals or dreaming up ideas for a quirky children’s book. Originally an intern at Honeycombers Singapore, she has recently returned to her first love: hip hop.
Dinesh Aijth, Lifestyle Writer
Dinesh is a pop culture junky with a penchant for puns, alliteration and witty one-liners. When not watching Blade Runner for the millionth time, he can be found perched over a bowl of ba chor mee at the nearest coffee shop.
Zakaria Muhammad, Editorial Assistant
is an extroverted introvert who absolutely enjoys nothing more than lazing on bed watching countless YouTube videos. You might also spot him at some artsy-fartsy gigs in town or food-hunting with his forever hungry friends around Singapore.
Hazirah Rahim, Graphic Designer
Hazirah is our resident cat lady and the office DIY Queen. Co-founder of quirky store Ozzy & Lulu, she’s rarely seen without a bold-coloured print and a sunny smile. When she’s not making snazzy videos or creating cool designs, she loves fiddling with new recipes, baking up a storm and scoping out obscure cafes.
Sze Li, Graphic Designer
Sze Li is our Instagram powerhouse and a Chinese history buff. An #OOTD expert and minimalist style enthusiast, she’s the person to look for if you want a fab photo. On weekends, she loves hanging out with Loki (her French bulldog) and chilling beachside with a frozen marg’ in hand.
Skye Marsden, Stylist
Skye is a travel and Interiors fanatic who loves to spend her time exploring Singapore and beyond for home and décor inspiration. She is constantly on the lookout for her next piece of furniture to up cycle and space to style. She also loves cheese.
