What are you working on right now?

www.primerdesigns.com - I've been running this web design company focusing on Asia-Pacific economies that are generally underserved. We focus on targeting first tier cities in large emerging markets and second tier cities in Australia and Canada. As the MD for Career Hack I have many roles. At the moment we are transitioning from a service-based business to a product-based business. Two of our products can be found here: www.brazilcareerblueprint.com www.chinacareerblueprint.com

How are you or your company using technology to create, analyze, and/or distribute content?

We are about to launch several books on the Amazon kindle platform about hacking at student loan debt while teaching English in Asia and bootstrapping. We also have private wordpress membership websites that deal specifically with launching international careers and startups in China and Brazil. We are working on the Colombia version as well.

Why did you join the Publishing Tech Meetup?

I'd like to be around people who use technology to produce, package, and deliver content-based products.

What do you think the publishing industry will look like 10 years from now?

I'm not entirely sure, to be honest. I've had my face in the grindstone creating products and content that I haven't taken a larger macro view of the industry. I didn't even consider myself in the publishing industry until I started working on a kindle book. This is why I'd like to join. It's important to execute on the every day work while also having an understanding of where your industry is going.

Introduction

I'm an internet entrepreneur who runs an Asia-Pacific based web design company. I also run an international recruitment consultancy focused on Gen Y.
