Marketing Manager And Creative Strategist
I am a 30-year-old professional artist turned entrepreneur from Cape Town, South Africa. I studied a BA (Hons) Degree in Theatre and Performance, at the University of Cape Town. I started working professionally after my graduation and didn't look back for 5 years. Professional acting and contract-based projects gave me firsthand experience on how important is it to be contractually empowered, as both an artist and from the perspective of professional agencies. My previous experience has laid a strong foundation in facilitating both local and international clients, ever-changing and fast-paced environments, confidence in performance (both rehearsed and improvised) and working alongside many different personalities and corporate hierarchies.
In 2019 I took a sabbatical from acting to travel the Spanish coastline and Balearic Islands, by crewing on a catamaran. In 2020, I wanted to learn how to empower myself through entrepreneurship. I was accepted into the Postgraduate Diploma in Entrepreneurship at the University of Cape Town, however I decided to defer my placement in lieu of Covid-19 and Lockdown regulations that made a practical course of study unpredictable and financially precarious. Instead of studying, I opted to develop my own business named Siroop. Siroop developed homemade and natural health concentrates that targeted holistic healing, offering an alternative to pharmaceutical medication. I successfully generated a zero-waste policy at Siroop, through waste repurposing and building by-products. In June 2021, I was accepted into the Future Females Business Accelerator, part of Cohort 8. The next three months was a mind-blowing education in growing and nurturing a business in the digital world, through branding, marketing, copywriting, growth, sales and finances (to name just a few). This experience furthered my interests in digital entrepreneurship, green business, and more specifically blockchain development and the emergence of Web3.0.
I have strengths in full stack marketing, creative strategy, writing, design, speaking, organization and management and I'm particularly strategic in high-pressure situations. My quick boredom drives my enthusiasm for skill development, quick adoption and growth.
This year, I have worked as a Marketing Manager in a Blockchain Startup, building an NFT Marketplace, and an Oat Milk Brand, based locally in Cape Town.
My biggest drive is be of service in a space that I can learn from too. I am a dedicated, educated, worldly and committed professional. I am determined to work full time and remotely.
