Meet the team
Paid Marketing Manager Deanne Kondrat brought her cool and calm demeanour from ‘the other London’ (London, Ontario, Canada) to the North East of England to join the Silverbean team.
Deanne has Diplomas in Journalism and Public Relations from Fanshawe College in Ontario and has previously worked for a number of Canadian agencies in paid media and social content. Deanne has also worked in marketing and public relations for a wide range of art and culture companies, including The Grand Theatre, The London Arts Council and The London Heritage Council.
Deanne is a keen Netflix devotee and you’ll often find her watching a sickening amount in one sitting without feeling guilty, with her delicious homemade guacamole. When she isn’t binge-watching bad movies from the 1990s, you’ll find Deanne making her way through Aldi’s wine selection while writing and blogging. She’s our very own Carrie Bradshaw!
Deanne is obsessed with music. As well as collecting records, she loves playing guitar and once met her rockabilly idol, Wanda Jackson, who gave her all the juicy gossip about dating Elvis Presley! She’s also the founding member of one of the longest running indie music festivals in London, Ontario, the Grickle Grass Festival. She once sang with Josh Groban, too!
Deanne is a huge fan of the film ‘Face Off’. So much so, she named her dog after Nicholas Cage’s character, Castor Troy!
