About me

Previously a video team lead, content producer and video editor, I strive to be multidisciplinary and I'm highly involved in every level of the creative process - Ideation, through pre- and post-production. My track record of writing, proofreading, filming, editing and journalism skills have been proven by a recent media award (Best App/Portal/Website) for an online visual storytelling platform, whose team I lead (www.facebook.com/millennialsofkl). As my previous position was in a online media publication, the fast paced environment saw me working strictly with deadlines and I’m able to proofread with speed. I also produce content for clients and editorial and have extensive client management experience. Being a team lead with high EQ, I’m organised, know when to delegate tasks whenever needed and I strive to create an inclusive and positive environment where team members are encouraged to grow, personally and professionally towards a common goal. With my experience as content strategist in an events company and a video team lead in an online media company, I enjoy conceptualising brands and implementing brand guidelines. Throughout my years of employment be it full time or internship, I’ve always maintained good relationships with people across all levels.
