Hello

I’m Cam MacMurchy

I am a former radio and television journalist now working as a PR director at a multinational Internet and technology company listed in Hong Kong.

I’ve loved technology since I was a kid, when I got excited in the run-up to the launch of Windows 95 and installing a 9600 baud modem. I also had a dream to be a journalist (a sports reporter, originally!), which I was fortunate to do for several years before moving to the other side. I have now been in public relations for nearly two decades, but the industry is constantly changing and staying fresh. I’m most interested in the intersection of technology and communications, and am laser-focused these days on finding new ways to leverage technology to tell more compelling stories and work more efficiently.

This site isn’t all about work, though! Please feel free to poke around and see if anything interests you. I also invite you to sign up for my newsletter — you even get the option of selecting blog posts only on the topics you are interested in.  

Thanks again for visiting, and don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can find contact info at the bottom of this page. Cheers!
