ABOUT ME

I'm basically a huge nerd and proud of that fact. My experience spans advertising, brand strategy, visual communication and design, social media strategy, marketing and communications, digital strategy and service design. While I have worked across almost every industry and for every sort of company (from start ups to multinationals), my passion now lies in healthcare transformation. The more I learn, the bigger the picture gets and I am totally fascinated by the intersection of human-centered design, technology development and system based strategies.
