About Me

Professional Summary

Gravitating towards study with an emphasis on consumer behaviour, it is my ambition to help brands develop more meaningful relationships with their customers.

Taking pride in the results I achieved completing my double degree at Monash University — majoring in Marketing and Communications — I excelled in customer insight and strategic development. My academic success saw me awarded the Monash Business School Prize in 'Buyer Behaviour in Marketing' and spend a semester at the University of Leeds' School of Media and Communications. Understanding how consumers think and act, and informing brand strategy according, had become a passion.

With a keen interest in content creation and media production, I have worked with the digital publication, Press Start Australia, from its early independent days through its acquisition by Southern Cross Austereo. I was fortunate enough to be nominated for the Journalist of the Year award at the 2018 Australian Games Awards, where I also hosted and co-produced the pre-show and Press Start was awarded Publication of the Year. The following year, I co-hosted and produced a weekly video game segment on the Hit Network's Danny Lakey Late Night Show.

 

My connection to the video game industry led me to a role at Scoleri Williams, a collective of three creative businesses including the video and animation studio, Creativa; the software development company, 7-YM; and the video game studio, Ultimerse. As their Community and Social Media Coordinator, I manage content calendars for the three brands and play a major role in strategising and coordinating marketing campaigns for the launch of a SaaS product, and a video game.

I strive to make a  positive difference in all that I do. From high school captaincy to my participation in multiple volunteer programs, I endeavour to always inject enthusiasm, optimism and fun.
