Location icon Trinidad and Tobago

Three years ago, I decided to focus my career on content marketing---helping organisations and brands create informative, educational and engaging content for their audiences. I had spent near 6 years in the technology field working with senior execs and public officials, first, writing security policies and then, doing communications work.

On the long road to this epiphany, I manged to rack up a few accolades including a Master of Marketing distinction achiever award, 2 national scholarships and a world rank order of merit form Cambridge International Examinations for the 2004 3rd highest mark in English Literature.

When I'm off the clock, I'm knee deep in design and craft projects alongside wife and motherly duties.
