About me
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 administrative and 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. *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).
