I'm a marketing geek who dabbles in a little bit of everything, with a special focus on content strategy, digital marketing, marketing automation, and community building. I'm fanatical about grammar, punctuation, and syntax, and my eye for detail is sometimes a blessing, sometimes a curse. I'm also passionate about visual design. Oh, and I'm a professional singer on the side.
I have a strong background in communication, and have 12 years of experience across different industries - grant-making, subtitling, and advertising, to name a few.
My geeky passion is
Crosswords, interactive online word games, Scrabble, Taboo, etc. Essentially anything involving words! I love anything that challenges my cognitive skills. A complex jigsaw puzzle can keep me occupied the whole day! I also like to tinker around with HTML, and I'm very interested in analytics of any kind.
The thing I love most about my work is
I never know exactly what my day is going to be like. I can go from writing a client story one day to designing an advertising campaign the next, to planning an event the day after. I love variety, and that is something I get to experience every day at ThoughtWorks.
The most interesting thing I've learned on the job is
There's always something new to learn. It could be a new tool that helps you do a task faster, a keyboard shortcut that makes your life much easier, an enlightening fact about a colleague that makes you see them in a new light, or something as small as learning how to make the coffee machine give you only milk when you want only milk! I'm amazed at the amount I've been able to learn every single day that I've spent here.
