I have deep experience in the full marketing process – strategy, research, product development, pricing, distribution and merchandising, advertising, media, events, PR and digital marketing. I have built and led marketing teams from 5 to 25 people and dealt with numerous agencies and marketing partners.
I love identifying and solving growth problems that may be known or are just around the corner. Clarity of purpose and forward motion turn me on. Indecisiveness and bureaucracy are my kryptonite.
  • Grew CTOS’ business leads by 300% in span of 3 months, which resulted in 2x sales.
  • +50% website traffic, +200% increase in student enquiries for IMU which resulted in 2 consecutive years of double-digit admissions growth.

I am of mixed heritage – my mum is Italian and my dad is Malaysian. Born in KL (Malaysia) i then went on to Milan (Italy) and Exeter (England) over the next 21 years. This multi-cultural experience allows me to feel at home both in Asia as well as in Europe.
I have been living and working in KL, Malaysia since 1998, with a 1 year stint in Indonesia in 2009/10.
I am fluent in English and Italian. I can fake my French by adding a few accents here and there!
Love: gaming (i’ll Pwn you on Call of Duty!), running, cooking Italian food and my ‘kids’ – Marmite the dog &  the cats, Jedi and MooMoo.
Hate: Durian (an Asian fruit), Brussel sprouts and anyone who tells me to eat less pasta – because “Gluten is so bad you know?!”
