About

London-based community manager helping businesses thrive through customer operations and digital media management.

Wholesome optimistic and obsessed with driving positive change through innovation and creative ideas. I am passionate about technology and believe it to be instrumental to building a better, fairer future. I am at my best when I am tackling complex problems, uncovering creative new business opportunities and driving stakeholders at all levels towards a common goal through product strategy and operations management.

I have a thing for words, get a kick out of empty inboxes and great copy and still secretly hope I can be a full-time poet when I grow up. I am into poetry and all kinds of literature. I grow in love with London more often than out and am partial to its good food and free contemporary art galleries, but Lisbon will always be my happy place. I try to travel as much as I can and enjoy sending old postcards while I am at it.
