About me

 

When I was 18, I somewhat fell into an amazing opportunity. W Magazine and Bruce Weber were shooting a 60 plus page spread featuring Karen Elson around New Orleans and the lead casting agent happened to walk into my mother’s restaurant. I struck up a conversation with her, suggesting locations to scout out. In return, she offered me the chance to work as her assistant. I spent the next month running across town find locations and street casting. I worked on shoots, watching Weber in awe as I helped the fashion director pull a new dress or jacket. It wasn’t necessarily the glamour of it all that I wanted. I loved the process — starting with an idea and the working across a team to make it happen. I loved the stress and the pressure of trying to get an amazing end result. And I knew that was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life — not be on the front of magazines or the subject of a photo shoot, but instead the person that helped make it all happen. As a current student on the postgrad, PPA accredited Magazine Journalism course at the University of Sheffield, I've been working towards becoming a keen and confident journalist. I can swiftly research and write both vibrant, original features and short pieces, have a strong grasp on digital journalism skills such as writing for SEOs and social media, and a capable understanding of design and publishing, with advanced skills in Photoshop and InDesign. I've been utilising social media for stories through platforms such as Facebook, Tweetdeck and Banjo. In my personal life, I am a vigorous social media user with Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram.
