In addition to guiding creative direction for traditional and non-traditional assets, several noteworthy successes during her time in Bali include the launch of W Hotels’ first-ever global music studio, #WSoundSuite, which proved a game-changer for how the hotel group infiltrates the music industry, and she directed a short film starring fitness influencer Tara Stiles promoting Bali as a global destination, reaching an audience of over 100,000.
