Planner & Breakfast Lover
Alex Rees joined Quirk Cape Town as a QuirkStudling in March 2010 and is now a Planner in our Jozi Think team. Growing up, she idolised Huckleberry Finn – and just like Huck, she’d roll up her jean pant and chew on long grass! Eventually, after accepting that she couldn’t run off to live on a boat on the Mississippi, she headed off to Rhodes where she completed her BA in Legal Theory, Journalism and English. As a cherry on the top of her academic career – she completed a post-grad course in Brand Management at Vega.
Before joining Quirk, Alex gained significant experience in the online realm, working as an Account Manager for an online solutions and digital marketing company in sunny Durbz and dabbling in some freelance SEO copywriting. She also managed to squeeze in an epic adventure to South America. Quirk saw what an asset she would be to the team and soon snapped her up, convincing her to relocate to the Mother City. In Alex’s words, “to be online is to have the world at your fingertips”. Amen to that!
Alex aims to remain forever young - she loves meringues, breakfast and her Jack Russell, Harry. Her friends describe her as quiet, eager and intelligent and have affectionately nicknamed her, Pickle (?). Well Pickle, with all you have to offer - we are very glad to have you join our crazy QuirkStar family.
