About me

I can’t even begin to explain my role to my grandmother, let alone in a bio. Here goes… Art director, crazy about social, designer, illustrator, animator, feminist and a weirdo but who isn’t. Over the last 6 years, I went from just a designer working on KitKat social to moving across the globe to help launch a new brand as a senior Art Director. Over the last year, I’ve also been the head of Social for SheSays, involving myself in almost every campaign ran to create and shape a better platform for women. Recently named a Pitch Superwoman
