After graduating in 2003 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication, I spent the first five years working at marketing production houses and creative agencies in varying roles such as AV post-producer and account manager, managing the production of marketing assets (print, digital and audio-visual) and high-quality marketing campaigns on behalf of a brand.

In 2008 I took the leap from full-time to freelance. Initially in roles that were consistent with my experience. In 2010 I took the second leap from the agency side to the brands, where I have been working ever since. I started as campaign manager and have developed into marketing strategy and senior brand and marketing roles as part of a team in various global companies, spearheading the delivery of the strategy to achieve company goals and drive the brand to the next level.
