A Glimpse of Raewyn
Many say I leave quite an impression when they first meet me (pink stripes with blond hair or purple hair?), but I would like to say that I am driven and passionate about both my personal and work like. I love how Benjamin Franklin phrases it,
‘It is the working man who is the happy man. It is the idle man who is the miserable man.’
However, do not be deceived by my colourful and fun-filled exterior, work has always been a passion of mine; I have a journalism career behind me, where I worked on the news desk for AP/Dow Jones in London. Those were the days of “black suits” – “black cabs” & “long lunches”. I specialised in such market sectors as Energy, Soft commodities, Forex, Fixed Income and Technical Analysis. This led me to my passion for Public Relations and found my current career – Pink Tiger Media, which specialises as a full service advertising agency servicing the Banking & Technology sectors. My knowledge of the financial sector has allowed me the opportunity and freedom to develop creative marketing solutions for a number of companies across the globe.
With my creativity and drive no task is ever too small, especially when it revolves around my surroundings. Therefore, I combined my love for creativity by taking on the interior design of my tropical home, part of the concept was to surround it with bright bold colours. Behind the scenes, my home reflects the cities I have lived in New York – London – Hong Kong and now Tropical Penang Island in Malaysia and of course not forgetting New Zealand where I hail from. My home is adorned with eclectic items such as Buddha’s from Thailand, monks from Burma, Chinese furniture from Hong Kong, artwork from Florida as well as pencil sketches from London.
I have always been intrigued by the Chinese culture and practices of Chinese Meta Physics, also known as Feng Shui. Therefore, acting on my interest, I started my research on Feng Shui in both Hong Kong, Singapore & Malaysia which has led me to become a fully qualified Feng Shui practitioner. Since then, I have been incorporating these practices in my day-to-day activities.
All in all, I would classify my life as a melting pot of diverse cultures and backgrounds that I have accumulated through my experiences and travels around the world.
