I've always liked to challenge myself and I thought why not take a degree in accountancy? It didn't take long before I realized that I enjoyed swaying and singing to the numbers and measures rather than counting them!

I danced as an ensemble cast to West Side Story, performed on stage, got a callback from Disney and I even designed Christmas lanterns at the university which actually got me the coveted 2nd prize. (I was pretty sure there were only 2 of us, but I still considered it a big win!)

I moved to Singapore as another step to challenge my abilities, got into recruitment and took up French and Spanish. For 5 years I've enjoyed being part of people's careers - understanding their skills and learning about their goals and interests but above everything else, simply uncovering their whereabouts. I have recruited senior roles in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

Joining Grace Blue allows me to do what I do what I have done best over the last 5 years and this time for the most interesting and creative talents in the world of advertising, digital and media!

I still perform...in my own private space or in a tandem bicycle in Singapore's East Coast Park singing to the beat of Bruno Mars which must have freaked out one or two cyclists along the way! I just love the arts and I love being with creative people. I love getting to know them, understanding what they do, how they do things, what they think and finding out what they want to do next.

And in Grace Blue, I can do just that.
