Loretta Marie Perera, known to most as Rett, has been a writer for most of her life. What started as birthday card poetry and primary school compositions progressed to a career in advertising where she worked as a creative copywriter in her hometown, Singapore, a lifestyle reporter in Beijing, China, and then a journalist in Moscow, Russia.
As one of Artec 3D’s senior editors, Rett works with a team of writers as well as social media, video, and digital marketing departments to create a rich mix of content that absolutely deserves your attention. She also keeps Artec’s PR agencies updated on these stories, and makes sure they’re getting the attention they deserve. Besides editing and coordinating, she enjoys talking to and writing about a variety of people and their adventures with 3D scanning – ranging from scanning people’s faces for customized healthcare solutions, art preservation, accessibility, and lots more.
In the night and early morning, however, Rett also continues to work on her own creative projects, which now include poetry, essays, and most of all, her first work-in-progress novel, first conceptualized on a cold and unfamiliar winter’s morning in Russia, tucked away at a tiny table in an old apartment — any writer could tell you, a more perfect setting to begin a novel would be hard to find.
