Simone Kurtzke

My name is Simone Kurtzke and I’m an ex-Social Media Manager, WordPress lover, academic, video game addict, avid reader, and intellectual omnivore!

I live in Edinburgh, Scotland, having moved from my native Germany to the UK in 2000 (just in time for the new millennium!). After two years working in London, I came to Edinburgh – it’s been my home ever since (for a CV, check my LinkedIn).

I’m now a Marketing lecturer and Deputy Head for Global Online at Edinburgh Napier University’s business school. I’ve also been a digital skills trainer and digital marketing freelancer and continue to work in this space.

I’ve been working with digital technology in some form or other since the last century, and I’ve always believed in digital as a force for good.
