About me
I am a graduate of English and Film Studies building a career in the marketing and music industries. My current role as an acquisition executive for Performics (Publicis Media) has provided me with insight into marketing campaigns, reporting and analytics, audience behaviour, and digital media. However, my love of creativity and writing, as well as a strong passion for music, has encouraged me to transfer to the content, programming, press or marketing remit of the music industry. A position in these areas would allow me to flourish in a role that I am already currently immersing myself in, through the music publication Trouve la Groove. Running the digital music publication Trouve la Groove alongside my full-time employment has helped me to progress within both my professional and personal life, as each side compliments and educates the other. Through operating this passion project I am fulfilling multiple roles: writing; editing; playlist curation; press communications; events organisation; social media marketing; music programming; website management/design; music research. By balancing my work deadlines, overseeing passion projects, along with a busy social life, I am able to achieve targets and goals in all aspects of my life - through managing my time efficiently and utilising room for productivity. My travel experience has also encouraged me to explore different cultures and discover more of the world, a career in the music industry could assist me with this in the future.
