Just about a year ago, I was about to leave my previous job to embark on a new career.
I spent most of my working life up to that point in the world of TV. I was a programmer for a major cable network. I loved my job and one of the best things about that job was to tell people that I watched TV for a living. But over the course of almost 10 years in the industry, I grew increasingly restless and to be honest, a little jaded at how the medium is not evolving.
Since then, I have moved to the digital side of the content business. While I won’t (and can’t) talk about where I am now but what I can say is that it’s really exciting being on the digital side of the industry. I believe that in the bigger scheme of things, these few years will redefine the content business for next few decades to come.
Along with the new job, I have also left the tiny, crowded island of Singapore to settle in a not-so-tiny but even more crowded island of Hong Kong. The past year was quite an adventure – living in a strange new land and trying to make sense of everything. It’s been nothing short of a blast and I think I can finally say that I’m settling in and normalising.
I’m starting to blog again but only after careful consideration of what I can and want to talk about. For starters, you won’t see much of my photos taken with my DSLR. Why? That’s for another post coming. You will however, read more about life in HK for a Singaporean and also, I will share more about my thoughts on the state of TV and where I think (and hope) the industry is going.
Stay tuned, if you will. If you love TV and have an interest in the digital and tech industry then we’re going to have a lot to talk about.
