Let’s break the ice, shall we?
Heralding from Brunel University, (studying my BA in Film and Television Studies and MA in Media and Public Relations) I quickly realised I was not going to be the film director I thought I would be when I left college. Instead, I found a passion for communications, and digital marketing.
I’ve recently finished managing the social media for AkzoNobel‘s home decoration brands, including Dulux UK, Dulux Trade, Dulux Decorator Centre and Cuprinol. This was an exciting role, where I worked relentlessly to integrate insight-led, and user-generated content alongside their large marketing campaigns. Currently, I am working in a similar role for GiffGaff.
When I’m not slogging away on my two-screens (or sometimes three-screens), you can often find me performing in a local dance show, reading in my bean bag chair, traveling the world, or just plain being a geek at a fan convention. Sometimes I like to be adventurous, and do crazy things like skydive, bungee jump or climb big, big, big hills like Mount Kilimanjaro. I also eat an obscene quantity of Bournville chocolate, so feel free to use this knowledge to your advantage when working with me.
As you can see from my website, I am passionate about knowledge sharing. I’ve struggled through being a team-of-one for many years now, and take great pleasure in being able to adapt and learn new things quickly. Through my #SocialWolfpack, I love to share my experience and knowledge with other lone-wolf social media managers out there!
