ABOUT

From a very young age I recall having this passion for technology. I was always determined to follow a career in technology, and so I did! I graduated in BSc (Hons) Computing from the University of Greenwich, whilst few years ago I've completed a Higher National Diploma in Management and Administration from the University of Malta.

I've worked for over 12 years on several EU Funded IT Projects which helped me gain experience in Creative Design, Business Systems Analysis, Web Development, Social Media, Product Design and Project/Product Management. Recently I also got involved in a start up called - iSmart; an inclusive app for students with learning difficulties.

My top skills are:

  1. interpreting what business people want and what the technical teams can achieve.
  2. making teams as productive as they can be, yet ensuring they are doing it with passion.

Skills

Business Analyst

It's never easy understanding what what your client needs but with the right approach, this can be achieved.

Team Lead

Keeping your project on track is important. Leading by example is my mantra!

Creative Design

Left brain or right brain? A creative person is always ideal to have within your team 😉

Product Design

A product is not only great if it functions the way it should but also if it looks right.

Social Media

It could be just for fun, but it can also be used to connect great products and companies with people.
