David MacGregor Barlow
David is a freelance writer who also rescues, repairs and restores vintage typewriters.
Previously, David has been a multi award-winning copywriter and creative director — working for ad agencies in Hong Kong, the UK and Singapore.
He is a fine arts photographer (with three exhibitions in Shanghai); a blogger (he created, wrote and photographed the inaugural Cathay Pacific Holidays Tumblr blog). As an artist, he had a workshop at the top of a derelict, 1920s villa in Shanghai.
He has written and photographed numerous features for a wide range of international publications. He has won prizes for his short-fiction —including the annual SCMP/ RTHK Hong Kong Short Story Competition.
David writes for a living, but his passion is for restoring old typewriters. He is a self-confessed ‘ typewriter evangelist.’
David is currently based in Hong Kong.
