Desmond was first captured by the power of theatre in River Valley High where he was a student. He then went on to join and eventually head the school’s Chinese Language Drama and Debate Society, participating in numerous performances.
Spurred on by that theatrical start, Desmond went on to be a part of Drama Box’s youth wing, ARTivate, and is a graduate of its second cohort in 2014. He has also served as director’s assistant (movement) for Kopitiam (2016), a programme of the Esplanade’s “Feed Your Imagination” series.
Desmond plans to continue his work in performance, exploring theatrical structures and how they can create spaces for conversations in the community. He was an Associate Artist with P7:1SMA from 2017–2019, and is currently a Senior Coordinator of Public Engagement at the Singapore Discovery Centre.
