You have probably heard the phrase 'find a job you enjoy and you will never work a day in your life'. Well, I was lucky enough to do just that. When someone asks me if I enjoy what I do I tell them, 'it's like getting paid to do your hobby'.
I have over 10 years professional experience in marketing communications, branding and public relations. I have lived and worked in Australia, Europe and the United States of America. I have been lucky enough to work on projects that encompass my actual interests and pursuits. I relished my involvement in shaping the brands behind one of the largest telecommunications provider; creating campaigns for the most thrilling TV shows, developing the on and off-air visual identity of a market leading TV channel; and this year, remodeling the UK and international marketing strategies for a unique, British, challenger brand. In case you have not guessed already, I am a digital playerette in an analog universe.

Most people would know not to put down 'watching television' in their hobby section. It is not very impressive and will show a certain lack of imagination. However, I really do believe that in my case this is an advantage not a problem. This is my job. I love watching commercial breaks on TV. I never change the channel or go to the kitchen to turn the kettle on, or grab a biscuit during the commercial break. I am also thankful for billboards and adshells because, good or bad, they provide some entertainment. I disagree with the 'Clean City Law' that banned all outdoor advertising in Sao Paulo, Brazil. This is kind of up for discussion.
I am a science fiction consumer and a lifelong collector of babushka dolls. Concerning gardening, I would rather call myself a serial pot plant killer than a gardener, but I keep trying.
I have a keen interest in everything to do with advertising, branding and marketing; in fact you might call it an obsession. I am full of energy, experience, hard work and enthusiasm. I have been characterized as a pocket rocket who is highly skilled in project management and doing whatever it takes to exceed any expectations and nail deadlines. I enjoy building corporate culture, joining interactive communities and forming art projects to leave a footprint behind. My life outside of work is filled by time spent with friends, urban rollerblading and hosting board game nights.
I am always interested in new opportunities in marketing communications and advertising, so do not hesitate to contact me if you are looking to fill a spot.
