Jess Chua: content specialist and award-winning writer/artist. Passionate about UX, writing, and design.

1. Professional Bio

Jess Chua: Content Specialist


I’m a content specialist living in Southwest Florida.

I created my first website back in the late 1990s (a dragon website).

After several twists and turns in my career path, I came to realize that writing is how I blend my passion for creativity and problem-solving. I strive to be results oriented through providing meaningful improvements.

Anything related to thoughtful communication, UX writing and design, processes and documentation piques my interest. I’m intense and obsessive when it comes to research and analysis.

I was an English/Business interdisciplinary studies major. I identify as a wordsmith and digital native.

You can view my resume here.



I grew up in Singapore (about 85 miles north of the Equator). I lived in Northeast Maine (cold winters) for most of my twenties, and now live in a Southwest Florida town (humidity and hurricanes).


I’m blogging for fun and self-expression nowadays after many years of SEO-heavy niche blogging.

My three websites are:

  1. (personal/portfolio site)
  2. (dragon website created in 1999)
  3. SG Blog (socio-political blog and book reviews on Singapore)

I slow down on blogging if I’m in a more creative mood (see creative bios below).


I’m on LinkedIn.

I’ve cut down my social media usage to spend more time on reading and other pursuits.

Jess Chua: Artist


Artist Statement: I think of my drawings as chaotic calmness. I sometimes incorporate textual elements to emphasize a message. I enjoy simplicity and the details when I explore art. My personality has many contradictory traits—art is a terrific way for me to synthesize these different parts of me. It’s also very therapeutic.

Artist Bio: Jess grew up in Southeast Asia and is currently living in Florida. She works as a professional writer and has been sketching since her late teens with pen and pigment liners as her preferred art tools. She enjoys writing and drawing equally in terms of self-expression, reflection, and exploration. Jess was a winner in the “waffles” themed Canva Design Challenge and a Special Recognition Award winner in Light Space & Time’s “13th Annual Cityscapes” contest.

Jess Chua: Writer

Edgar Allan Poe was my gateway to fantastic literature.

I sometimes write short stories and picked up a Musepaper award for one of my cathartic essays.
