About me
Hello! I'm a content writer, copy editor, photographer/videographer hoping to join a creative editorial team. I am the editor and co-founder of Nice People - a free print magazine and event series that celebrates local creatives and DIY culture in the North. I love going to gigs and discovering new artists, producing written and visual content about DIY culture and supporting local creatives. I have recently completed a BA (Hons) course in Film, Photography and Media at the University of Leeds.
