I'm a marketing and communications professional with 8+ years of in-house, agency and freelance experience. I've worked in a range of industry sectors - legal, pharmaceutical, technical, automotive, housing, and the arts. I love my job because I get to experiment with both the art and science of marketing. Sometimes my work requires me to be creative, imaginative, and make something beautiful - and other times I need to be analytical, logical, and crunch the numbers. I'm results driven and love being able to demonstrate that my work has made an impact.
