Elizabeth Rees

My name is Elizabeth Rees. I travel the world, pretend to be a competitive swimmer, stretch daily as a human pretzel, addicted to spinach pizza, incessantly take pictures on my phone, and explore the next cocktail craving in my mind.

My background comes from a wide variety of areas of expertise from playing with knives to performing on stage to building websites. I currently work as a digital marketing specialist in Düsseldorf, Germany. Displayed throughout this site are projects that I am currently working on or contributed to throughout my professional experience.

For more information, feel free to contact me directly. I invite you to visit the World Wide Web page to explore my projects, but you can also view my resume below. Thanks for visiting!
