Producer

Rinse FM

Jul 2018
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • Rinse FM is an urban radio station that specialises in underground, grime and hip hop music. As the producer of The Breakfast Show I am responsible for the live output of the three hour show. Being a live show means that I have to be meticulous with the show plans so that the presenter knows exactly how it should be transpired. This includes having a vigorous track list, scheduling social media posts, sourcing engaging content on a daily basis, and turning ideas into reality. Extensive research and scripting interview questions is a regular task while sourcing relevant guests for the show. One aspect of the role that I love is creating video content and curating social media content for Instagram and Twitter as I feel it not only creates fantastic audience interaction but a transparency. All work must be created with the specific target audience in mind.

  • Freelance
  • I have been a presenter for Women of Power UK’s iTunes podcast The ConverHERsation since July 2018. The recordings are once a month and involve 45 minute episodes hosted by four women from various backgrounds discussing a range of topics from body image, sexuality, hypersensitivity within society and men in feminism to name a few. Prior to recording, I am sent a brief to which I am responsible for researching and forming my own educated opinion towards the matter. Being involved in a women’s organisation has taught me the importance of female empowerment. As a podcast presenter on this particular panel I have refined my researching skills and the ability of discovering unique angles to provide engaging discussions.

Two major projects that I worked on over the year of 2018 were their European pop-up stores in both Copenhagen and Barcelona. Not only did I assist on planning the pop-ups, but I also attended both and was responsible for the PR of the events, liaising and securing various venues, forecasting stock levels for shipping, processing invoices to the accounts team and general office management. The highlight of my time with Never Fully Dressed was back in March of 2018 after three months of working with the company, my video content that I shot, directed and edited was played across the London Underground. The adverts featured across twelve stations including London Liverpool St. and London Bridge. Most recently I shot their SS19 Collection campaign and Bridal wear launch.
