About me

I'm a writer, brand consultant and the founder of Women Who - a London-based platform for creative working women. Whether you’re an institution or an individual, a brand or an agency - I love crafting creative and cultural projects, both on and offline. From insights and brand strategy, to internal comms programming and events - I can help you bring your projects to life. A background spanning creative agencies and publishers including media powerhouse Vice and world-renowned creative agency AMV BBDO, means I’ve worked across a diverse range of projects encompassing: branded content, advertising (TV, print & digital), digital and social strategy, and strategic/brand partnerships. I'm particularly interested in the lifestyle sector; women’s brands; digital culture and innovation; and youth culture.
