Mommy. Creative Director. Kinesiology Coach. 2019 Next Creative Leader.
Marie Claire holds many titles, but the one she believes truly defines her is ‘A student of life’. She also believes that there’s always something to learn from every waking moment and there’s something we all can give back to every day. A fan of the unconventional, a master of engaging communication and a jury member at renowned award shows, MC as she’s lovingly called by her colleagues, holds a master’s degree in creative advertising and a bachelor’s degree in 2D/3D Animation from the Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts.
After graduating with honors in 2005, she received an excellence award along with an internship at the prestigious ENSAD — École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in France. Since 2006, when she was offered a placement at Impact BBDO Dubai, she’s been honing her skills and creating insightful communication for Mars, PepsiCo, Johnson’s, Amazon, Google, Heinz and a range of international brands, and has been recognised at Clio Awards, LIA Awards, Dubai Lynx, D&AD, Loeries, AdStars, Global Cristal Festival, MENA Cristal, Effies and Cannes Lions, but what she cherishes above all is that moment when she hugged a real lion on a farm in South Africa.
Her penchant for injecting positivity into life, has led to a certification in Professional Kinesiology Practice by ICPKP New Zealand and Kinesiocoach Dubai and currently when she’s not thinking of creative ideas, she balances her time between learning from her three-year-old daughter’s perspective of the world, meditating and practicing kinesiology.
