Guest Hunter, Nat Duncan
“serial entrepreneur”, and this week’s Guest Hunter, Nat Duncan. This dynamic mother of two teenage kids left teaching 7 years ago to run a film locations company in Brisbane, Qld, Australia. Since then, she sees everything with new eyes and recently launched her latest project Precinkt. The company was started when Nat realized how much she adores her neighborhood, the inner suburb of West End. With all of the conveniences – the best coffee, delicious food, amazing people watching, fantastic shopping, and a great place to explore, there’s no reason to leave. She then came to the realization that the whole world is made up of these little “precinkts” and why not create a place to highlight all of these wonderful little spots. Precinkt’s all about images and will be built by contributors from all over the world – people with passion and a great eye. Currently, it features only Australian precinkts but in April 2012 she’s heading to New York and looking to expand. Get ready!
This very cool, very driven woman has found that her specific skills with location scouting, precinkt.com research, working with young entrepreneurs and surrounding herself with curious people have enabled her to have an eye for the upcoming, the new, the cool and the quirky. For threetwentyeight, she shares some of her favorite Australian products. Items with superb quality, a strong ethos and of course so identifiable with the psyche there. As Nat puts it “we are a long way from everyone else on this planet – so it’s allowed us to really celebrate our unique personality. Our economy is super strong at the moment compared to many countries in the world and this has only enhanced our in-your-face pride and lust for life”.
So click here to check out this inspiring lady’s picks from Down Under and get ready to share your precinkt on Precinkt!

Guest Hunter, Ami Pak
absolutely adorable Guest Hunter, Ami Pak. Ami was born in South Korea, raised in Minneapolis, went to college in Northern Ohio and Southern California, and now resides in Brooklyn. The fact that she’s lived all over the world explains her strong sense of individuality. I mean, the girl grew up composting and gardening vegetables in her backyard with her parents and 4 siblings (she has a brother and 3 sisters). Now if that’s not badass, I don’t know what is. She’s got style, creativity and smarts. A pretty amazing combination which can be seen in her hobbies; like printmaking, making kimchi, her obsession with design collectives, and emerging fashion. Ami is currently a Senior Program Manager at frog Design and has worked at a bunch of other reputable companies such as luckymag.com, HBO.com, MTV.com, Razorfish, and Dreamworks Records. In addition to her work and her hobbies, she’s always down for good comedy, adores her nieces and nephews, loves her friends, and feels fortunate to be living in the “Golden Age of Brooklyn”.
