About me
By day, I’m a multidisciplinary Senior Art Director. By night, a side-hustler working to create equal opportunities for women, an occasional illustrator, and gamer. ‍ With over 9 years of experience in design, art direction, and social, I've worked across multiple local & global 360 campaigns for brands such as glo, Philips, Boots, Nestle, and more. My work has taken me around the world, from shoots in Europe to spending 18 months in Tokyo where I co-created and launched the voice for a new brand, Co:Labs. ‍ Outside of this, I'm the Head of Social with SheSays, involving myself in every campaign to help create and shape a better platform for women, and I mentor for LWD & Kerning the Gap.

We were able to launch the project over a short, 1 month timeline, culminating in a launch film and campaign that was spread across Tokyo in digital & social.
