My creative training started in a nursery school in Tokyo and continued to shape under radiant (albeit slightly smog-diffused) sunsets in Jakarta, later infusing with the teachings of landscapes of early-naughties Hungary. Then back to Japan, it's good to touch base sometimes. I eventually found myself in glorious Scotland and then decided to take a plunge into another global and metropolitan hive: London. And here I am now, until the next home calls... Having grown up travelling across the globe has shaped me to become the curious and friendly creature I am, with an inherently positive and helpful nature. I seek to pick up new and different skills through any situation I find myself in! Now to more serious talk, I am also a creative thinker from an Arts and Design background, with a high-achieving mindset and a team-oriented, collaborative approach. Experience from different environments* has given me strong stakeholder liaison skills as well as crucial social media knowledge to complement my operational knowledge of events management. This allows me to contribute with a holistic, hands-on and committed enthusiasm. I am most interested in Immersive Events, Experiential Brand Activation, Environmental Sustainability, Intersectional Feminism and Community Development through the Arts. Collaboration is my bread and butter, or the carrot at the end of the stick... with admin being the stick. My respect goes to all who wholeheartedly enjoy and only do admin. A friendly environment and a common creative cause for good is what keeps me going and what I'm looking for -and can give- in a team. Now, did anyone say "let's collaborate"? *Theatre, Performance Arts, Puppetry, Events, Hospitality & the Service Industry (we all know there is nothing more humbling than training and dedication in dealing with people's foods).
