Meri Paterson

The ideas business and other interests

About me

Me at a pub quiz. We didn’t win.

Hello, hello! My name is Meri Paterson* and until September 2016, I worked in book publishing in London. My job was basically turning ideas into money, which was fun (but hard). Here I used to write about the process, what it made me think about and what interested me.

I’m a full-time MBA student at Imperial College Business School, graduating Autumn 2017. 

I’d like to say I defy categorisation, but I actually fit quite neatly into several boxes:

  • ‘Other White’ (Finnish)
  • Immigrant
  • INTJ
  • Straight
  • Married
  • Atheist
  • Free-market capitalist
  • Glass-half-full
