About me

 

I’m a creative, confident writer and currently work at British Airways High Life and Business Life as editorial assistant. I am motivated and highly organised, being responsible for the production of the in-flight entertainment section. Coming up with great ideas is my strength, I’m constantly scouring blogs, Twitter and any magazines I can, thinking of ways to turn something with an interesting hook into a fascinating story. I write regular features and articles for the magazine to deadline and sub copy. I have written full-length articles for the magazine. I commission writers and communicate directly with our client, British Airways. I have taken a PPA subbing course and was a finalist for ‘Best Graduate/Intern’ at the PPA New Talent awards in 2014. I am fluent in Spanish.
