About me

 

My interests lie in technology and social behaviour; finding new ways to approach the current status quo and see potential implications of change. During my MA studies I expanded my understanding for the need of critical thinking, analysis and communication. Previously, I have worked as a designer but also gained experience from various administrative roles, which have given me an excellent comprehension to the day-to-day running of a studio. I have also years of experience within customer service; being in direct contact with customers as well as via phone, email and chat. Working in an environment with like-minded and ambitious creative individuals would be ideal as I can contribute greatly to an innovative team.
