BSc FHO & BFH in Media Engineering
Online Marketing, Media Applications, Product Development & UX Design

Currently working for the Swiss Confederation integrating the Agenda 2030 into Switzerland's cantons and communes.

I am a digital communication manager & product developer with Swiss/South African roots.

My BSc in Media Engineering took me to three universities.

In Chur (CH), I learnt how to produce content with the Adobe Creative Cloud: short films, digital storytelling, video journalism, pr, content management and corporate agenda setting.

In Hamburg (DE) I learnt operational data management, digital product design and in depth web development with Angular 2.

In my final year in Bern (CH), I entered the mentoring program focused on digital marketing (SMO, SEO) and creating digital solutions. I majored in media applications - a field of HCI using different front-end technologies to present information to humans simultaneously assessing their reactions.

I speak three languages fluently and am on the board of the Erasmus Student Network of the City of Bern as Head of Media and Communication.

I currently create media communication strategies to sensitize a target group on important topics regarding national goals in sustainability for the Swiss Confederation.
