Summary

Hi, I am Ana. I am a strategist, writer and doctor of sociology. I am obsessed with how technology changes the way we experience the world around us.

I help brands disrupted by technology to better understand how to successfully use it to connect with their customers and achieve business results. My approach to problem-solving is holistic and agnostic as to what solutions should be.

In the course of my career, I worked for brands in the US, Europe and Asia, and solved problems in industries as diverse as retail, automotive, financial services, media and publishing, telecom, sustainable energy, spirits, beauty, packaged goods, home furnishing, jewelry, entertainment, travel and hospitality.
