About me

I've started my own company (Threads Equality Agency) running diversity and inclusion training and consulting (mostly teaching people about feminism) but I don't like doing it alone. I want stand-up meetings and coffee runs, group problem-solving, and being part of something bigger. I have a Masters in Creative Writing and a lot of community experience especially with diversity projects. I'm a wiz at organising and I pride myself on my ability to come up with innovative ideas. I love creative people and networking. I'm fascinated by the mechanics of connecting people and bringing them together. So a creative networking site is the perfect place for me.
