Kareyst collects the world in stories. Her writing journey started with Baybeats 2014, and she focused on arts and music reviews for a while before venturing into B2B technology for Computerworld Singapore, MIS Asia and CIO Asia; and on government technology for GCIO Asia. Her pet areas are artificial intelligence, Internet of Things and smart cities - these are fueled by her obsession with sci-fi movies and philosophy of mind.
Amid her busy schedules, Kareyst steals pockets of time for watercolour painting, sewing and photography. An active Yoga practitioner, she has background in Indian philosophy, subaltern and diaspora studies.
