An award-winning strategist, consumer psychologist, public speaker, mentor and lecturer who has over a decade's experience in checking consumers' pulse in various fields of marketing. A 'forever-student', I hopped continents either studying and working in Izmir, Los Angeles, Istanbul, Malmö and finally London - which is now home from home. Being in digital marketing for so many years kept me on my toes about the ever-changing nature of consumer behaviour - I am guilty of overanalysing consumer interactions in light of tech adoption and cultural phenomena, as a result, consumer psychology and behavioural sciences have become the true and natural home for a mind like mine. Currently continuing with my PhD studies in Cognition and Culture to enhance my academic explorations with cognitive sciences and cultural anthropology.
I love working on brand-level strategy to unpack target or desired-consumers' unknowns through a human lens, and believe that consumer psychology and cultural insights always prove to be the most rewarding exercises for myself and my clients to embark on journeys of major leaps for strategic brand and product innovations.
