I started my first paid journalism job in 2010, at age 16, when I co-founded Privesc.Eu
, a Moldovan media startup that broadcasted live from press conferences and other public interest events. I went on to work as a reporter for non-profit Moldova.org
, eventually founding and running the commercial arm of the newsroom. After I graduated from City University, I started my first data job at dataviz agency infogr8, where I helped companies like Spotify, Billboard, Oracle and Mars present their data in the best way possible. I briefly took a fixed-term contract with property portal Zoopla, working with their data analytics team to uncover insights about homeownership and renting.
