Head of Research and Narrative
With a BA in Filmmaking, Elena has gone through several career transformations in her decade within the creative industry.
She began her career as a Delivery Manager at Filmmaster MEA. In under two years, she ascended to the position of Post Production Coordinator, managing the post production for the entire company. During this time she was also a core team member tasked with inventing the sport of the future for UAE Prime Minister Office, resulting in the first internationally held World Drone Prix, Dubai 2016.
Following her passion for art, she left her position at Filmmaster MEA in order to evolve her skills as a painter and writer. Prior to joining THE AIMES, she was part of a team developing narrative driven futuristic concepts for World Government Summit - UAE Prime Minister Office, and The Future Museum for Dubai Future Foundation.
A creative problem solver with a unique knack for interconnecting ideas to produce a synthesized result, she is the go to person for projects that lack an existing roadmap and require a new approach. Most comfortable within a multidisciplinary setting, she thrives on challenge and round the clock work.
Her intercultural experience stemming from childhood spent in the Middle East enables her to cooperate with a diversity of people within creative, technology and academic sectors.
