Melita's dreams of becoming a hard-hitting journalist were dashed when, having completed her BA in Mass Communications (with majors in Journalism and Marketing), she discovered that writing news stories about politics, sport and education didn't tickle her creative bone.
Upon stints eating her way through Bangkok as a food writer, and writing her way through New York while moonlighting as a dog walker, Melita thought she'd try something 'different' by studying graphic design — and so, this pint-sized, award-winning, art-directing writer found her true calling in the world of advertising.
Melita is utterly fascinated with human beings and loves sharing their stories. Her other interests include: attempting to align her book-reading and book-buying habits; devouring the documentary catalogue on Netflix; writing dubious poetry; and translating into human-speak the deep inner thoughts of her dog Banjo.
While not one to fit into a box, she ticks as many as possible.
