My social identity is a combination of my career in project management, my interest in knowledge management (project planning), living a healthy lifestyle, a strong addition to coffee/good music. My tonality will be pieced together through healthy cooking, interesting articles on project management in the media industry, pictures, music, learning and humour so readers will follow along and to understand my mood and story in the same manner.
