FUNGE ME HERE
I've been a creative person my entire life. But really, I've only learned to monetize my creativity for the past decade. I have a lengthy background as an editorial manager freelance writer, graphics designer, and communications manager. I've been able to wrangle brands big and small, from local favorite coffee shops to city governments to newswires to national and even international organizations.
In my latest role, I've come to master the art of earned media. I am currently a senior editorial manager at 72Point, Inc., a part of England's very own SWNS media group, where I I handle a large swath of accounts from a creative role.
My job is equal parts consumer research, news writing, crisis comms (only on the bad days), and account management. While my byline is ususally "SWNS Staff", it's a title I carry well as being a part of one of Britain's largest and most respected media groups, as well as an up-and-coming tour de force in America.
And as a result, my work has landed in publications like The Sun, The Daily Mail, Yahoo!, New York Post, PC Mag, Financial Times, Martha Stewart, and countless others.
Of course, there's more than just what you see here. I've also written for myself for a number of self-launched blogs and digital publications.
A self-started blog about architecture, design, art, and where all three intersect.
A collection of ramblings, most of which were featured on many of the platform's different sectors.
