About me


I am a versatile and experienced marketing and advertising specialist who has spent the past eight years working with a range of fantastic and prominent brands including Sony Music, Apple, Serato ITV, American Express and OpenTable. I have both agency and client side experience and have managed a wide variety of campaigns and projects across different industries and markets. I am an articulate, confident person who relishes challenges and working under pressure. My greatest strengths are my communication, project and stakeholder management skills, as well as my knowledge of the full marketing mix and keen eye for detail. I have a proven ability to produce and deliver top-quality work, with some of my proudest achievements including working in Los Angeles to oversee the development of Apple TVC’s for Australia, and managing the broadcast marketing campaign for the X-Factor Season 10. Perhaps just as importantly, I am a fun and social person that works well as part of team and I am excited about finding the next opportunity,
