Cam MacMurchy

I am a Canadian living and working in Hong Kong as the Senior Director of Global Communications for a large, Hong Kong-listed Internet and technology company. I’ve been in Asia since 2004, first as a radio and television journalist before re-entering PR in Hong Kong in late 2008, where I’ve been ever since! I often write about the things I’m most passionate about: communications, media, technology, and travel.
