I'm a marketing and communications professional who has worked in Seoul, South Korea for the last 7 years.  I covered numerous local and global campaigns for leading brands including, Calvin Klein, American Express, Samsonite, LG Electronics, and Samsung Global. On occasion, I also participated in a number of Korean television and media roles.


I am a UQ alumni from the POLSIS School of the HASS faculty. At UQ, I participated in study abroad experiences in Japan and France. Upon graduation, I relocated to Canberra to work for the Australian Government. These days, I am an Erasmus Mundus Scholar and have spent the last 2 years studying and living in Belgium, Germany, and Estonia - supported by the European Commission.


I am currently studying a Master of Artistic Creation with a specialty in music therapy at the University of Paris, France.  I hold a Diploma of Languages with a major in French, a Bachelor of Arts with a major in music and psychology, and First-Class Bachelor of Arts Honours with a major in music, all from UQ. Throughout my time at UQ, I participated in a short-term global experience at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, a semester exchange at the university Lumiere Lyon 2 in France, and the Shakespeare Summer School in Europe. In 2018, I received the UQ Employability Award. Besides my master's studies, I am currently employed part-time in the french aviation industry, am completing music therapy internships with children who have sensory deficiencies, as well as adults with psychiatric disorders, and am a member of the international abstract translating team for the Music & Medicine Interdisciplinary Journal.
