About me

I am a digital producer with experience in advertising and fictional content targeting Generation Z. My background includes working with household names, including Reebok, Under Armour, Times and Sunday Times, Guardian, Vice, Jeep and more - as well with small independent companies where I designed campaigns with executive teams to maximise marketing communication. As a content creator, I operate with the primary intent to deliver the best digital experience for the benefit of the organisation audience growth. In the past year, I have focused intensely on the topic of Millennials and Gen Z, discovering what crucial differences in media are needed in order to communicate a more effective message. As a result of the research I have been invited to a series of media conferences across the UK to speak about our team's insights. I feel at my strongest at the editing desk and in the strategy room, with a vivid passion for creative strategy to reach new audiences.
