About me

My interest in the arts, specifically film and literature, led me to pursue an education in film and design communication to Masters level at the RCA. I then pursued a career in copywriting and editing, from a life long passion. I am used to creating content to strict deadlines and thrive in busy environments. Working in these sorts of conditions has meant that I have cultivated excellent communication skills. With a creative and positive outlook I am determined, hard working, loyal and focused on continual improvement. Also obsessed with dogs and Nick Cave.

Work history

Currently

Editor

North Four magazine

Jul 2016
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • Culture journal specialising in Arts / Food and Drink / Music / Fashion, / Beauty / Health and Wellbeing. Within my year at the magazine, I was promoted from Staff Writer to Editor. Fortunately my passion for writing was indulged and I felt in my element producing content to a deadline on a daily basis. I particularly loved giving new writers the opportunity to deliver articles and to provide productive feedback. I learnt the magazine’s tone and ways quickly, whilst suggesting and implementing new ideas such as video content, use of original GIFs and plugins which significantly boosted click through rates and traffic to the website.
