Online Media | London, United Kingdom, GB
**TIER 2 SPONSORED VISA HOLDER. NO RECRUITERS PLEASE.**
I am a capable and versatile communications professional who is experienced in online journalism, social media platforms and strategy, as well as all facets of video production. I have worked in both creative services and in client-facing roles. I am attentive, organized, and quick to prioritize and delegate to ensure job completion. My objective is to produce engaging content and effectively communicate stories across multiple platforms.
In a former life, I have worked among retail/customer service, teaching/education, and legal sectors, in addition to advertising, TV production and journalism more recently. Currently, I am employed as a Digital Strategist for Ketchum working primarily with Corporate and Consumer Brand clients. These experiences, along with degrees from the US, Australia and the UK, give me a unique skillset and outlook to bring to project briefs.
Outside of work I am involved in various start-up/PR-social meet-ups, write reviews on peer recommendation sites, and am concerned that I'm a good case study for FOMO. I blog about online/offline trust, things that give me creative inspiration and food & travel. When not networking or playing online, I'm likely to be found cooking, travelling, or watching movies. I take my coffee skinny with one sugar and my whisky neat, no peat.
I am a member of the 2012/2013 advisory board for Social Media Week London. In 2012, I spoke on Sex, Love & Social Media at SMW Valentine's Day-themed session. Blog post, slides, and other associated media links can be found at bit.ly/xxHtVE.
