About me
Seasoned adlander and indigenous digital creative with over 17 years experience across London’s TTL & BTL agencies servicing challenger and world-renowned brands. An integrated native thinker and doer across the entire comms and experience workflow; creative strategy, concept development and content creation - even happy presenting if required. What makes me individually unique? I'm female! Self-proclaimed expert in female insights. I'm Andorran, I grew up comfortable speaking three languages and one of them is HTML. I'm equally relaxed working solo as I am in a team and being a digital native has made me a natural collaborator. A qualified fine artist, I can draw straight out of my consciousness, visualising coherent ideas at pace. I'm confident managing both upwards or downstream having been a group head of multidisciplinary teams in the past. As an art director spent many a moon casting and directing photo shoots/video shoots, video editing, v.o. recording and shot selecting.
