I'm an editor, writer and digital strategist who handles everything from overseeing print production to social media campaigns. On any given day, that tends to involve commissioning and managing a broad team of contributors, organising photoshoots around the world, helping brands find the right voice to grow their audience, interviewing celebrities, producing viral content (and then seeding it), putting on workshops, reporting on analytics... and everything else required to push stories as far as they can possibly go.Locked Pro Plan feature
I work at Huck, an independent publication that roams the world to celebrate cultural mavericks, pioneers and outliers. It's what makes us the home of artists, extreme sports athletes, activists and creatives who paddle against the flow – offering a unique lens for capturing scenes and movements as they happen.
I've been a contributor to the BBC, NME, The Financial Times, The Observer, MOJO, Time Out, Mr. Porter, Red Bulletin and Little White Lies among many others.
I wrote across every section of the newspaper on a variety of subjects including technology, lifestyle, music, travel, health, politics, religion, film, property, art, business and psychology. This ranged from in-depth cover stories and news reports to weekly digests or ‘crash courses’ on current affairs, many of which featured as the ‘most read’ items on the Irish Times website.
I was an integral part of the small editorial team behind this award-winning publication, helping it build up to a circulation of 60,000 copies (audited by ABC). I remained a regular writer, sub-editor and contributing editor between 2010 and 2013. My responsibilities included sub-editing, writing, editing several sections, generating ideas, writing headlines, liaising with PRs and managing the editorial calendar.
