About me

Professional writer with over 5 years’ experience, including roles as Content Manager, Managing Editor, and Senior Editorial Planner. My passion for strong, engaging content has seen me thrive in industry-leading, international media agencies, and both digital and print publications. I have extensive experience in creative and consumer-facing industries, with established household brands and publications. Creating engaging content for a wide range of platforms and audiences is what I do best. My ambitious and pioneering spirit, sees me approach my work with methodical thinking and data- led insight, and I strive to achieve excellence in every project I am involved with. I achieve results by taking initiative and following-through on commitments. Relocating to London and working with various outlets in creative and consumer-facing industries has contributed to the ambition of achieving a media-focused career creating engaging content for different platforms and audiences.
