About me

A creative T-shaped professional with over 10 years experience designing programmes, products and services in the digital space. I have also spent over 5 years shaping the future of education in international markets to solve global problems with local relevance. Currently, seeking a new opportunity to make more social impact at a systemic and societal level. 

I wear many hats from strategist, researcher, designer and help organisations to drive cultural change and solve complex problems with human-centred methodologies. 

On an individual level, I coach and support others to learn and grow. I have coached over 30 students to transition to a new career path. I currently volunteer as a London Enterprise Advisor to help schools bridge the gap between education and employability.

What am I looking for

I am passionate about driving social change and making a difference in people’s lives. I want to help organisations grow in a sustainable way whilst developing more humane and inclusive solutions to give back to society as a Trusted Advisor.

I care about making a positive impact in people’s lives by continuing to shape the future of education and wellbeing (mental health, dementia) with my expertise.

I am excited by expanding my skillset in leadership, strategy and coaching as well as putting into practice what I’ve learned from studying Social Innovation and Food Innovation.
