WHO I AM
My name is Dave. I’m a 24 year old Cork lad living the dream in Shanghai.
WHAT I DO
I work as the Brand Ambassador for Jameson Irish Whiskey in China, based in Shanghai. My job involves collaborating with bars, artists, DJ’s, and other creative industries on events where Jameson is the official drink sponsor.
WHERE I LIVE
I currently reside in north Jing’an area, Shanghai. I have been living in this area just over 6 months now and I love it there. Living in such a central area of a big city allows me to be near my office and bars I work closely with.
Given that I have studied Commerce and Chinese Studies as my undergraduate degree, and my Masters in Food Marketing, it has always been my dream to work for an Irish food or beverage brand in China. I loved every minute of my student life when I studied here in 2011, and the Chinese language has been one of my passion points for quite some time now. Working with Jameson has given me the opportunity to come back to Shanghai to do what I love, and I am loving working and living here.
