Career highlights

I’m a creative Social Media Manager with a global perspective in sports, deeply understanding fan dynamics. Having started my career five years ago in the UAE I’ve been fortunate enough to spearhead successful social campaigns across the world for renowned events like the PNC Championship, Chevron Championship, Hero Dubai Desert Classic among others. Alongside working in social media I’ve also operated within content production, working with the most renowned athletes in their respective sports.

Guiding principles

Get it done – these simple words are ones I live by daily. Anything is achievable when you put the time, effort and drive into it. I’ve always been a doer and I believe by naturally figuring things out and getting them done you learn so much through that process.

Side hustle

When I’m not creatively thinking for work, I like to build Lego. Being able to switch off but also release creative bursts in my downtime help keep my creativity flowing while also channeling my inner child.
