Brent Carey

Small Business Owner in Wellington, New Zealand

Visit my website

Kiwi expat home from Oz and Asia to be New Zealand’s second Domain Name Commissioner. Grew up on a farm in Taranaki, went to Vic Uni and studied law and arts. Left NZ to work in Australian Government, politics and the not-for profit sectors. In my 30s decided I’d try doing things for myself and cofounded two startups in ecommerce and hospitality. Been moonlighting as a small business owner these past five years while holding down a 9-5 job. Energetic supporter of the internet, startup and writing communities. In 2012 launched an international writing fellowship which sends an Australian writer to Sri Lanka each year. Try to be fun, open minded and adventurous wherever possible. Always up for good conversation and coffee. Divide my time between New Zealand, Australia and Sri Lanka. Follow me on Twitter brentpcarey or Insta brentcarey
