About me
Being a successful and relevant brand/company in the complexity of the 21st century requires dialogue and connection with the fast-changing culture of our time. My work revolves around cultural insights, translating the zeitgeist -the spirit of our time- and inspiring change. As a nexialist researcher, I give space to curiosity and intuition, hunting references from unlikely areas and sources, connecting dots that generate innovation and open minds. This gives support and sensitivity to the creative, marketing and business teams to imagine new scenarios and make decisions. I have ten years of experience, going through content, creativity, insights and researching trends in advertising, digital communication and technology. Team-player, remotely or physically. Resilient. Critical thinker.
