Why this role, and why Wings4U?
I used to be in constant search of more challenging and remote types of work because I love to travel, have so many personal plans and want a location-independent career. When I learned about Wings4U and their high profile clients, I was excited and curious as to what they do and how they manage global marketing programs and a worldwide team of experts. My first weeks were awesome - I immediately felt part of the team. You can see how passionate everyone is about their craft and how they nurture the #workanywhere culture. With my role as production manager for the APAC region, I just can’t wait to be part of all the milestones, success and fun here.
What are your past experiences worth raving about?
Swimming with whale sharks, scuba diving in Cebu, and surviving the desert heat in Dubai ☺
What makes you tick? What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about the infinite things you can do online to raise awareness and connect with people. Being a digital marketing professional gives me a sense of fulfilment. I enjoy helping organisations of all sizes and financial backgrounds communicate to a wider audience, discover how people feel and raise cause awareness. These things are not always possible with traditional marketing. In my country for example, mainstream media has long dominated information sharing and influencing opinion on government actions and politics. With social media like Twitter, there’s now two-way communication and an alternative platform to raise public concerns and act faster.
What’s your favourite quote?
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust
What’s your favourite music / bands?
I have several Spotify playlists depending on my mood. When I’m very busy, I like loud and EDM music because it keeps me focused.
Which book and movie would you recommend to everyone?
Book: Chicken soup for the soul collection and One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Movie? Probably the last one I watched – Train to Busan, a Korean zombie apocalypse horror film.
If you could go to dinner with anyone (alive or not), who would it be and why?
My grandparents. I wish I could have spent more dinner dates with them, listening to their Spanish, Japanese war stories, old soul views and myths!
