About Me

Well hey there! I’m Brenna. I’m an American who moved to Sweden for love in 2015 and am now a Swedish citizen living a life of lagom, meatballs, and IKEA. I have two dogs, my sweet 9 year old Shiba Inu, Hima, and my big doofy 3 year old Akita Inu, Tonbo.

All my life I’ve loved to draw, paint, create, and explore. Although I have no formal training, art has always been a passion of mine that I’ve wanted to pursue as more than just a pastime. Professionally I have primarily focused on Community Management / Customer Success, as well as leading teams, which I’m also incredibly enthusiastic about. Up until recently, I was the Customer Success & Community Manager for Mapillary, as well as helping out as a Brand Designer for them. This summer they joined Facebook and my position was no longer needed. It broke my heart that I wasn’t able to join them on that journey, but being a “glass half full” type person, I’ve decided that this next uncertain chapter of my life will be one I spend finding how to get my art out there and hone my skills.

I hope to create things to make people smile, make gifts that will be cherished, while learning a bit more every day on how I can be the best I can be. I also hope to find another company I can love as much as I loved Mapillary in any role that contributes to its success. I would love to work with Customer Success, Support, or Community Management at a place that values transparency, new ideas, and would give me the creative liberty to make choices on what we to do increase community engagement and customer satisfaction. I intend to continue learning these skills while maintaining this website while I wait to find my next position. 🙂

Aside from that, I love to cook for others, I love hot yoga, swimming, and running, I am proficient in Swedish, I moderate some popular subreddits on Reddit, and I’m generally a pretty chill chick. If you’d like to get in touch you can reach me at brenna@kaldea.se or if you’d like to commission me for an art piece you can submit one here.

Tack så mycket!
