Hey!

I’m Regina.

I am a professional communicator (and full-time chatter) with a knack for words. Not to fly my own kite – I’ve had the chance to work with some pretty great companies and in some pretty amazing projects!

I did a bit of everything: assisted a film production company, coordinated events and brand activation campaigns for brands such as Mercedes or Samsung, and managed operations at one of the fastest-growing startups in the UK

But digital media is the iced tea to my hot day. I am obsessed with good writing and love all kinds of literature. I get a kick out of great copy and empty inboxes and I still secretly hope I can be a real poet when I grow up.

I currently work as a Social Community Manager for Bumble, where I lead the social media function of our Badoo comops team. I am also a freelance journalist for Luxembourg-based newspaper Contacto, writing about technology, society and human rights.
