ABOUT ME
Born under the libra sign, loves to travel and see the world, takes and collect photos, plays with fire spinning, appreciates fashion and a gadget geek.

A creative at heart who pride myself in being an organized taskmaster too. I can ideate, plan, strategize bespoke content and collaborate with client or stakeholder management to ensure that ideas we create deliver. Being detailed oriented, I ensure consistency from end to end, I am aware of digital and social media formats, and I make sure to track and optimize content across the different platforms. I am passionate about designing solutions for brands and helping them shape their personas in the digital space.
While the majority of my experience was built in advertising. As a millennial, I make it a point not to be FOMO.  I continuously keep up with the trends and learn other disciplines like design thinking, UI/UX, data analytics, SEO, etc to compliment my core skills. Being a creative in the present, means having to wear a lot of hats.
