About me

A freelance social media specialist with over five years of industry experience open to new opportunities. No social media job is too big or too small for me and I’m just as comfortable making killer gifs and writing witty tweets as I am leading a team of social media experts to launch a major new brand or show. My most recent work includes heading up the Social Studio of Weber Shandwick London, leading a team of designers, copywriters, community managers and freelancers to create insights driven, original social content for some of the world’s biggest consumer brands including Aldi, Vauxhall, Nespresso, Unilever and Virgin Atlantic amongst others. I spent 4 years at Social Media agency Telegraph Hill as a Creative Lead where I developed and delivered social media strategy, social media management and content for TV and movie brands including the BBC, ITV, Sky, E!, Syfy and Universal. I have experience in developing social media creative strategies, social media management, asset creation, photography, photoshop, gif creation, copywriting, pitching, developing creative concepts, leading social teams, community management and social media insights and reporting. My goal is to captivate and entertain audiences with daring, original content that disrupts feeds, sparks conversations and inspires followers, if that meets your business needs, then call me on 07742662514 and let's chat!
