About

Born in Ireland, I was brought up in a colourful environment on the Greek island of Milos where my bilingual and multicultural childhood years gave me a unique and valuable insight into humanity. After finishing an internship in Dublin, I graduated from the Technological Educational Institute of Athens, Greece, obtaining a BSc in Marketing & Advertising. By then I had fallen in love with Dublin and decided to stay. After joining ICAD Upstarts in 2013 I knew that Advertising was my thing, so started working towards getting my dream career. In 2015 I decided to become a Master of Advertising, so I joined the MSC in Advertising in DIT. A year later I received the MSc in Advertising with a First Class Honours, an achievement I am very proud about.

In between all that, I have done various jobs, from phone tech support to Videogame Testing and website content creation for a travel agency, with my most recent work experience being as and Art Director and Designer in a small independent Advertising Agency.

As people often like to put name-tags on things, I often call myself an Art Director. But I am in fact so much more than that. With a flair for design, strategic intuition, a love for illustration, strong business sense, and an interest in media, I am an all around creative thinker (and doer). I’m a life-long musician, dedicated cyclist, and live and breathe Adobe, elements of my character which I bring together and express in my work. I love challenges and am a master of multitasking.
