Work history

2018

Content Director

intimate

Sep 2017 - Apr 2018
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • Working for a cryptocurrency start-up has enabled me to experience developing a brand from inception in a unique period of time. I researched, created and distributed original written and video content, graphics and images across a variety of media platforms. I also monitored the company’s social media channels, planned and managed a series of campaigns and events and interviewed significant industry figures. The role led me to learn about a completely new industry while challenging me to offer creative solutions to overcome the obstacles a start-up like intimate may face.
