About me
I am a Sociology graduate from the University of Cambridge currently working in Marketing. I have specific interests in: Content Marketing, Communications, Brand Partnerships and Experiential Marketing. I also have obtained a Level 6 Qualification in Professional Marketing from the Chartered Institute of Marketing. On top of my full-time job, I am a freelance journalist. I've always had a passion for music, and that shows in my journalism. I've interviewed high-profile musicians such as Grammy-nominated artists including Jazmine Sullivan, Dua Lipa and Tiana Major9, as well as rising stars such as Enny, Amaarae, Bree Runway and others. I've also written about film, TV and politics. Check out my freelance portfolio at www.timisotire.com My wealth of experience makes me a person who is creative, adaptable and organised.
