Online and offline, my life pretty much revolves around tourism, maps, cheese, wine, languages, running, food, and marketing.

I have more than eight years of marketing under my belt, including digital and experiential, as well as three years of people management experience.

I've spent more than five years in a roll-up-your-sleeves, do everything start-up environment, growing teams and making things happen with modest budgets and ambitious targets. Resourcefulness, creativity, and curiosity have been essential to my success thus far.

When I'm not working, I'm likely to be found reading, cooking, learning a language, keeping active, or drinking wine and eating cheese (hence why I keep active). I have a BA in Geography, an MSc in Tourism, advanced French, intermediate Spanish, and beginner German. I play rec sports, have run six half-marathons, am training for my first triathlon, and have done more food and wine travelling than I should probably admit.
