a STRATegic thinker & creative marketeer whose love of fashion led to a move in careers, a move in hemispheres and a move into the world of influencer marketing. 

After four years at one of Asia Pacific’s leading creative and digital communications agencies, I built a career and reputation as DDB New Zealand’s youngest brand and communications planner/strategist. However, a long-standing love affair with the fashion industry and a role working alongside leading influencers convinced me to merge my profession with my passion: to apply my expertise in brand strategy, brand management and social influence marketing in the area of fashion communications..
