I have been working in the field of communications for almost 17 years, specializing in outreach through publications, online media, multimedia and training. I have also managed projects, proposals, fundraising, budgets and supervised outsourcing.

When I started at GRID nearly 15 years ago I worked as a web/graphic designer and ever since I have been fortunate enough to be encouraged by GRID to expand my position. I have been given the opportunity to work both as part of a team of people, as well as alone from concept to final realization. I have been fortunate enough in my current position to use the full extent of my design background designing off-line and online projects as well as supporting the existing graphic design department, from concept work to negotiating with printers. Perhaps the most challenging (and ultimately, the most rewarding) aspect of my current position is the diverse range of language and cultural backgrounds I have encountered.

Key specialisation/interests: Anything related to design of graphical and digital media. Projects related to training with a special focus on youth activities.
