You can call me Alek, and I’m one of those inquisitive creative types who connects pop culture, new media, and new ways of learning together with all things marketing!

To try and sum up what I am, I’m a Digital Marketing Professional with experience in Graphic Design, Art Direction and Project Management. I consider myself extremely passionate about community growth, engagement, and user experience, especially in digital spaces and on social media. My approach and outlook are people-oriented and focused on building the best relationships between brands, audiences, and other stakeholders.

A background in both Advertising and Marketing has helped me sharpen my skills in conceptualisation and ideation, primarily focusing on Digital & Social Media. A stint in client liaison has taught me to think of both the users and stakeholders and figure out how to make things work for both. And a lifelong passion for innovation and collaboration has taught me if we work together towards a common goal, we can do great things.
