About me

After completing a duel degree master's program in global communications, from the London School of Economics and USC, I moved to snowy Norway from Los Angeles, CA.  

Here in Oslo, I am currently pursuing my passion for branding.  Currently the PR & Content Manager for DragonBox apps, I specialize in brand storytelling, content creation, and public relations. 

When I'm not being a marketing nerd, you can find me attempting to be a gourmet chef in my flat, reading historical books, and most likely watching a Star Wars film (Empire Strikes Back is the best).
