Entrepreneurship student at Kemmy Business School in Limerick, Ireland. Currently working on my startup "Trailwhisper", but looking to expand my experience with remote and freelance work.

I've got experience with volunteer work in Argentina and Chile, and was very lucky to manage an SME in Sri Lanka for a full year. Not only was I able to experience an amazing country and culture, but also to learn from live projects, such as app development and crowdfunding. At the end of my tenure I managed a crowdfunding campaign, successfully raising 500 000 NOK for software development. 

Areas of expertise:
- Inbound marketing
- Content writing (blogs, webpages)
- Crowdfunding

Google Startup Weekend, Limerick
Winner
2016 - 2016
Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event that gathers aspiring entrepreneurs with the purpose of creating working startups. Alongside my classmate Andi Schwarz, we pitched the idea of an online sharing platform for surfers on the first day of the event. The idea got through to the next round and enabled us to gather a team to further develop the idea over the weekend. On the final day of the event, the team pitched the developed concept, Trailwhisper, which is an online platform that provides everything traveling surfers need to plan and tailor a surf trip to Ireland. The jury honoured the team with a first place in competition with 10 other teams. According to the jury, the idea had sufficient validation and backing, and also the opportunity to scale, both within Ireland and worldwide. Trailwhisper will participate at Web Summit Alpha 2016, which takes place in Lisbon, Portugal.
