About me

 

For the past five years, I've been working in digital, marketing and social media. Since starting this path in 2012, I've built my knowledge, strengths and abilities, and have now worked for major companies and clients, strategising, implementing and analysing their digital presences. Currently heading up UK Marketing at audioBoom, I've previously worked with Crane.tv (a contemporary culture video magazine), Unbound (a crowd-funded publisher), Blondie Mania Bags (now Grandala London, an independent accessories brand), Shopcade (a social shopping app), and Waterstones. I also work on a consultancy and contract basis, working with clients to develop a digital and social marketing strategy, before aiding the implementation and analysis process. I'm also a trained journalist, having graduated with a degree in Journalism at City University London. By the age of 18, I had set up and created three newspapers and publications within primary and secondary schools, whilst ensuring that a blueprint to roll it out to 22 schools was approved and came to fruition within three years. I work regularly with schools to teach journalism and run newspapers, in order to train the next generation of writers and give them an opportunity I don't feel I ever had.
