Career highlights

Having worked as a Business Development professional within the construction sector since 2017, I now find the reality of working as a media planner 6 years later somewhat surreal. My career switch was fueled by a pandemic job loss which gave me the inspiration to pursue my curiosity in advertising and by studying a master’s degree. I gained my first media experience in London working on the Visa European hub team on a graduate scheme. Today, I’m enjoying solving the everyday challenges of agency life by servicing multiple clients from FMGC, Telecommunication and Insurance verticals and growing with my Wavemaker colleagues.

Guiding principles

As a firm believer that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. I feel that cultivating a team spirit ultimately leads to a better standard of work. Outside of work, I think it’s important to value the small things that brings day-to-day fulfillment. Mine is coffee, football, and gaming.

Side hustle

In November 2022, my life changed forever when we welcomed our beautiful baby girl into the world. When I’m not changing diapers or singing nursery rhymes (badly), I’m catching up with friends and sleep. In the future, I would like to coach youth football and watch my daughter play for Man Utd in the women’s soccer league.
