I am the ebook warrior at PublishDrive – if you have any questions regarding your ebook, I am your person. I've graduated as a librarian and information scientist from the ELTE university, where I learnt how to manage and create e-books. I've worked as a reference librarian with extra activities at Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), and I've helped out PublishDrive with e-book management multiple times before I became a full member. I consider myself a bookworm, I've read thousands of books in my life; my most favourite ones are Erich Segal (Doctors, The Class), Iny Lorentz (Die Wanderhure Series), L. M. Montgomery (Anne Series, The Story Girl).

Zsofia Macho is a bookish person: she writes, edits, translates, proofreads, converts and page-sets books. She also likes to read them. Currently finishing a linguist MSc at the University College London, she has a tough time displaying scientific journals on a traditional Kindle. When she is not doing anything text-related, she spends her time playing co-operative board games or badminton.
I am the technical spirit of PublishDrive: I am responsible for translating the business concepts into actionable technical realization. Before PublishDrive, I had several roles and positions: I worked as a web and database developer, Business Intelligence consultant, social media innovator, IT architect, and even as a CEO. What all these positions had in common is that I always had to understand both the technical and business sides of the firms and I often had to act as an interpreter. I believe that success can be achieved only when business and technology are hand in hand, but it doesn’t happen by chance: you need to understand both. At PublishDrive, I am this person.
I made PublishDrive become reality: I am behind most of the code running behind the surface. I consider myself as a full stack developer, constantly improving my skills with new coding languages, but my favorite languages are PHP, HTML5, SQL. Coding is my life and I enjoy solving a problem with automation that no one else can do. Since I believe our back end can only work if it is fully automated, I am always on the lookout for new cutting-edge automation solutions for PublishDrive.
