Before entering the world of branding, digital and communications, Andrea completed her Bachelor of Architecture degree (with honours) from the University of Melbourne. Since then she has applied her big-picture approach and belief in strategic design outcomes to award-winning projects in Australia and Asia.

Andrea has worked extensively in tourism and destination strategy, most notably on brand development for Qantas, the launch of Jetstar, campaigns for Tourism Victoria, and tourism destination strategy for the regional centre AlburyWodonga. Andrea was part of the MRTB leadership training program in 2012 to develop greater understanding for tourism issues in Australia, notably in regional areas.

In 2013, Andrea combined her passion for contemporary art with event branding as a founding director of not-for-profit initiative, Nite Art. This annual contemporary art event and digital platform creates easier access to art and artists in Melbourne. 

Andrea’s further education includes Advanced Strategy Planning with AdSchool Sydney (an industry recognised program for advertising and marketing professionals) and Advanced Diploma in Tourism Marketing and Events.
