About Russell Loo:

I'm a driven and tenacious individual with a flair for the arts, as well as a strong curiosity in learning the workings of the human mind. As an ex-police officer, I’ve a particular interest in individuals on the edge of society, such as at-risk youth and current/ex-cons, with the aim of contributing to their rehabilitation and reintegration into society.

I’m easygoing with a good sense of humour, but also diligent, and I always make the effort to ensure the satisfaction of all stakeholders involved in my work. I prioritise efficiency, leaving no stone unturned in ensuring the quality of the work I produce. I enjoy dealing with numbers, and I’m especially interested in how they can reveal insights about human attitudes and behaviours.

I'm also an aspiring musician with a vested interest in the genre of metal, and I'm involved in Singapore's underground music scene as well! I mainly perform as a vocalist, with a niche in the harsh vocals of metal music. I also possess an intermediate understanding of music production and audio engineering.

I've dipped my feet in many areas and am eager to contribute in any field where my work can create positive impacts on people, particularly in the fields of the arts, law enforcement, social services or psychological well-being!
