In case you hadn’t heard, our Colindale space is up and running. It’s been a hard few months of tearing down walls and flogging old bar stools, but we finally did it! Our biggest space yet, with 6 private offices, an events space and a coffee shop – it’s pretty amazing (if we do say so ourselves!). So, when it came to finding a Community Manager for this space, we knew we needed someone who could hit the ground running. When we met Grazina (who had lots of experience in the coworking industry) we knew we’d found our girl. We’ll leave it to the lady herself to tell you a bit more.
Hello! It’s time to make a friendly introduction so you can get to know me better. My name is Grazina and I have started my journey with Areaworks as the Community Manager at our newest (to date) office in Colindale. Joining a start-up is an exciting opportunity as you get to be involved in every aspect of the business and be a part of creating a brand. I am very excited to be a part of the Areaworks team and have the opportunity to create relationships with our members.
I’m originally from Lithuania and moved to London years ago to experience life in a multicultural city and meet people from all over the world. I am still here, so I guess it’s obvious I’m enjoying the Big Smoke. I absolutely love London and what it has to offer; however, a few years ago I took a long break and moved to the Island of Gods – Bali – a sunnier place (not hard!). A year spent in flipflops, riding a motorbike, daily yoga and a never fading suntan – it really was as amazing as it sounds! That’s when I first heard of and worked in a coworking space. I do love travelling and this passion took me from spending time in a Buddhist Monastery in Nepal to an Amazonian jungle in Peru. Mind-blowing experiences!
I am also a professional photographer and most weekends you can find me at weddings or in front of the computer editing many beautiful images. But no, I am not always working. I have an amazing circle of friends and enjoy a little boogie or movie night in. Some nights you can find me dancing the night away to Latin music – I am Salsa crazy! Yes, crazy!
