Social Media Manager

I made the move to Dubai in September 2015 with my husband and then 6-month-old baby boy. Over two years on, I now have an 18-month-old daughter and a very active three-year-old son. It took some time but Dubai has grown on me. After completing my bachelor’s degree in Science, I worked as a Sleep scientist in Australia for over seven years. During that time, I always had a passion for photography and social media but it wasn’t until I moved to Dubai whilst on maternity leave that I turned that passion into a reality. A friend of mine once told me that Dubai was a place where you could reinvent yourself, and that I have. I keep the creative juices flowing by regularly writing on my personal blog and taking snaps of all things intriguing to me. I have a passion for languages and cultures and enjoying the melting pot that is Dubai!
