About

Summary about life and work experiences

I type, hit the backspace once… then type a few more words, before my index finger reaches for the backspace again. I've made several attempts to write about myself – but nothing materialises. My thoughts go blank, I space out, and I daydream a little, reassuring myself that there is something potentially interesting and unique I can say about myself. I'm probably as interesting as a refrigerator – but hey, refrigerators can be pretty interesting if you observe them long enough. Some of the modern ones even have internet connectivity.

I am Malaysian-Chinese, raised in the city of Kuala Lumpur – a melting pot of cultures, ethnicities, sights and sounds. Our country isn't very good with finding missing aircraft, but you probably already knew that. But that's okay. The multi-ethnic culture that we live in makes us understand and respect each other's diversities. And squabble about where the best Chinese fried rice is, and spend hours over food debating the best way to run the country.

I started as an IT graduate; and immersed myself into the digital industry for more than 13 years crafting web experiences. My mentors witnessed the growth of a humble Web Designer, to an aggressive Traffic Manager, and eventually an organised Project Manager in the course of 6 years. I also had the chance to explore digital production for web where I was involved in managing the resources, props sourcing, catering service as well as liaising with talents, making sure everything runs smoothly.

Besides, hear what others has said about me!

Aivee from KL said:

“Ridiculously meticulous is what I immediately thought of when it comes to Pek Zhan. I've had the pleasure to work with her on several projects after she's made the switch from Creative to Project Management.”

Itir from Turkey said:

“Pek Zhan is everything you would ask for in a volunteer. She is very kind, helpful, respectful, and above all, she is perfect in everything she does.”

Srdjan from Germany said:

“Zhan was surprise from the first day! Not only did she spend the last 5 weeks with us by taking her responsibilities seriously, she also helped us several extra days outside of her working hours - a true workaholic, and a great person overall! :)”
