Scouts

Name: Dori Z.

City: Warsaw, PL

Dori has recently returned to the homeland after some time working in London. These days she creates marketing and communications strategies for a new private aviation start-up (btw Monocle recently called Poland the new aviation high-flyer).


In London she produced branded content for VICE. Her love for brands was probably born while working at PR department at HBO. She loves great food, obscure cocktail recipes and Instapaper.
