sofmema is Sofia Marques, me – a digital marketing enthusiast and guitar player.
Born in Portugal’s sea side, I graduated in Languages & Business Relations from University of Aveiro and in Guitar from Conservatory of Music Calouste Gulbenkian. Later on I also studied Music Marketing & Production in Lisbon, landing me a job as Booking Agent at one of the top talent management agencies in Portugal.
Because I felt like there was more out there to be explored, at the end of 2015 I moved to Berlin and started working in mobile advertising at AppLift. Sometimes I joke and say that I went to Berlin just to find myself. The truth is that in those 9 months there, I learnt more about myself then in the last 10 years I’d spent in my homeland. I made amazing friends, learnt about a very unique and profitable industry, joined a music producer’s collective (Strength in Numbers, check them out!) and lived/discovered amazing art projects and culture.
When I was done finding myself in Berlin, I moved to rainy Dublin for a few rounds of Irish luck and pints of Guinness. Now I work in digital marketing for an agency called Epsilon, as an Account Manager on the Google account. I also decided to go back to school to upskill, so I’m taking the MSc. Digital Marketing & Analytics at DIT. I can say I am enjoying the ride so far.
