Writer (Based In Tokyo)
Alex is a translator by trade and loves working freelance. He is also something of a musician, having spent over ten years playing and touring with bands, including his own solo project under the moniker ‘Chapter’. Alex enjoys music, food, travelling extensively, Tokyo and his wife (who isn’t really his wife, but that’s another story). He’s a bit of a snail, living with his house on his back and he believes that it is possible to represent people’s personalities with a totem of three animals: His is Bear – Cat and he still can’t make up his mind for the third one, which just goes to show what a useless theory this is.
Writer (Based In London)
Alex brings an international flavour to Alvinology, born & bred in Singapore but resident in the UK since 1997, Alex has lived and worked in many countries in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. He is passionate about learning languages and speaks languages as diverse as Spanish, Welsh, French, Hokkien, Mandarin, Malay and gets by in over 20 languages. Way back in the 1990s, Alex was a 3-time national champion gymnast in Singapore and was the captain of the gymnastics national team. He was a triple scholar who has studied at UCL and Paris-IV Sorbonne.

Tan Kok Kuan
Writer (Based In Shanghai)
Kok Kuan is (yet another) former classmate of Alvin who’s contributing to this website. He is a Public Relations Practitioner with close to 10 years of experience (rounded up!) who actually believes in the purpose of his discipline as ‘the conscience of an organisation’. He thinks it is one of the greatest ironies in life that the PR profession does such poor PR for itself.
