I have worked at hmv.com since October 2013 when the site was relaunched as a editorial website. I commission all the site’s features, co-ordinate and write the lion’s share of the site’s news, conduct interviews with artists, filmmakers, actors and more, organise freelance contributions and conduct all forward planning. During my time at hmv.com I have interviewed musicians ranging from big name popstars like Olly Murs and McBusted to rappers like Kid Ink and George The Poet and rock bands like Kasabian, Fall Out Boy and Enter Shikari. I have also interviewed the casts of movies like Godzilla, Horrible Bosses 2, Chappie, The Hobbit and many more.
I ran the social media accounts for a number of high-profile movies during my time at Organic from January 2013 to September 2013, including Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing, Peaky Blinders, The Host, Beautiful Creatures and more besides.
I worked at NME.COM from December 2010 to October 2012. I wrote up to 15 news stories per day, conducted interviews, wrote for the magazine in both news and reviews, assisted with festival coverage and with forward planning. I also worked as the website’s social media co-ordinator. During my time at NME, the Twitter following grew from 110,000 people to over 350,000 in just over 18 months and the Facebook likes grew from 82,000 to 210,000 in the same time period.
