Hi, I’m George Putong, and I help cover the Philippines for Telum Media.
For inquiries about my work at Telum, email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re a journalist and would like to make an editorial career announcement or issue a callout for press materials and story pitches, please feel free to email our team at email@example.com.
For everything else outside Telum – including potential partnerships, video, and podcast content collaborations – please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Previously, I was a Content Marketer at LinkedIn, a Digital Content Producer at NBCUniversal, a Trailer Producer at MediaCorp, and a Producer at ABS-CBN. I studied Broadcast Journalism at DLSU-D with the distinction of not failing a single subject. I was a Features Writer and Copy Editor at Heraldo Filipino.
I was born in the United States and raised in the Philippines. But when a taxi driver asks me where I’m from, I tell them I’m from Singapore. The “sunny on the left, rainy on the right” island has been my wonderful home since 2012. I advocate strongly for LGBTQ+ rights, gender equality, and mental health awareness.
As a passion project, I write and produce weekly videos from Singapore on my YouTube channel.
My work folio is available on request. Let’s connect on LinkedIn.
Mask up and stay safe!
