    Storyteller & Strategist(Various)
     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    I specialise in crafting compelling stories rooted in strategic thinking. At Apple, I craft stories at the intersection of technology and humanity. But my story didn't start there. I’ve been a junior, a senior, a leader and (always) a listener. I have worked in teams of 1 and teams of 1000+, with experience in everything from executive communications to investigative journalism. I’ve worn many hats in my time - social media manager, copywriter, communications lead, content creator, speechwriter, curator, consultant, ghostwriter, brand strategist, producer, director, photographer - across many different sectors, including charity, broadcast media, the arts, energy, government affairs, fashion and others. Clients include (but not limited to): Stand Alone Charity, Great Ormond St Hospital, bp, MoJ, BBC Creative, TfL, BBC Africa, Magnum Photos, Vogue, H&M, British Red Cross and more. I’ve worked full time, freelance, contract and briefly ran my own communications consultancy.
