Paul Kay

A highly experienced editor and journalist, Paul Kay is the co-founder and former editor-in-chief of Time Out Hong Kong, former managing editor of high-society and luxury bible Hong Kong Tatler, and the founder of creative content agency Perfect Ink Media.

As a journalist, Paul has written extensively on art & culture, food & drink, music, film and football. He has also interviewed many of Hong Kong's most powerful tycoons, such as Sir Michael Kadoorie, Marjorie Yang, Pansy Ho, Lawrence Ho and Allan Zeman, as well as celebrities such as David Beckham, Scarlett Johansson, Isabella Rossellini, Nobu Matsuhisa, Frank Gehry, Irvine Welsh and Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece.

Paul’s true passion, however, is travel writing, and this incurable curiosity has taken him from the highlands of his native Scotland to the ends of the Earth, including the Galápagos Islands, the Burning Man festival in the Nevada Desert and the World Cup Final in Rio.
