About me

My name is Roan, a 23 year old Jr. Digital Creative working at MediaMonks. Coming from an academic background in Liberal Arts & Sciences, I now strive to combine my interdisciplinary knowledge with creative thinking. There's nothing that gives me more energy than working together with talented and creative individuals who can bring an idea to the next level through their own set of skills. Everyone has different qualities, different ways of looking at the world and therefore bring their own unique perspective to the table. I find it immensely exciting to see ideas grow this way.
