Daven Wu

After eight years as a commercial lawyer, Daven Wu decided to embark on a career in journalism. He now writes for Monocle, Time, Robb Report and Travel + Leisure, and he’s Wallpaper* magazine’s Singapore editor – making him the perfect person to guide us through his country’s transformation from mudflats to metropolis, on page 30. This autumn he’ll check off a lifelong dream: “I’ll be sailing up the Mekong River with celebrity chef David Thompson, before heading to Bali for a few spiritual healing lessons.”
