Work history

Blog & News Editor

Time Out

Mar 2011
  • In 2011 I co-created the Time Out blog, a new channel to showcase key socially-driven editorial content with fresh stories, new ideas, and a unique tone of voice. After the project’s initial test phase, I took on sole responsibility for the platform, growing and managing my own editorial team, a community of bloggers, a loyal readership, and implemented the global blog strategy. The blog is now one of the single largest traffic drivers for Time Out London site, with over 2.5 million page views a month from across the globe.
