I have spent the past two years writing articles for the readers of Konbini.com on the topics of entertainment, lifestyle and current affairs. My role has been focused on producing and coordinating daily content for the UK and US versions of the site. This included writing and researching news, reviews, interviews and features and the management of several other journalists. It was also my responsibility to grow the brand’s social media presence, managing accounts with some 1,000,000+ followers.
Prior to working as Editor at Konbini was employed as News Editor with a role focused on curating and editing the daily news output of the UK site. This position involved reacting to trending topics and pushing breaking news content on social media. Everyday work included assigning stories to other journalists, researching and writing my own articles, fact checking, copyediting and proofreading.
I was selected as VICE’s UK intern in their production department for a period of three months. Initially I was responsible for research and pitching ideas for new content, then later I was employed as a freelance filmmaker and assistant on a number of documentary shoots. Duties included contacting potential interviewees, budgeting productions, working on set for in-house l projects and collaborating with producers on new pitches for upcoming films.
