My expertise is within the field of social media and I specialise in community management and the development and implementation of social media strategies that engage beneficiaries, customers and the wider public. My passion is for reaching audiences by using engaging and creative storytelling. I also have a strong interest in producing audiovisual content which is reflected in my recent work as a video producer. I enjoy connecting with a diverse range of online audiences and also face-to-face with clients and internal stakeholders. My additional skills as a theatre maker, writer, comedian and workshop facilitator enable me to communicate in creative and effective ways.
