About me

Hey, I’m Darcy. I’m a community manager, social media lead and PR executive living in London. I focus on building online communities, creating bespoke digital marketing strategies and generally being 'the social media whiz' within film, entertainment and anything fun! Find my CV at bit.ly/darcyjgilescv, and my portfolio at bit.ly/darcyjgilesportfolio! When I'm not working, my hobbies include seeing films, tending to my houseplants and craft beer tasting! I love to travel - particularly to Belgium, where I enjoy visiting breweries and trying traditional styles.
