introduction

Less a Jill of all trades and most likely just indecisive, I write, craft, bake and tinker about on Photoshop.

Presently, I am a Content and Social Media Manager at NOISE, where I muck about on in the interwebs all day. I predominantly write short stories, poetry and even the odd song, but blogging is like breathing, to me.

I've been lucky enough to do a little bit without doing very much, at all. I got a citizenship award at age 9, was a finalist for Channel 4's Raw Cuts 2007, traveled to Kraców, as part of the EU's Youth in Action program, been published a couple of times and I've even been on the radio once or twice.
In my spare time, I bake yummy things and make upcycled jewellery. Less productive activities include, but are not limited to, keeping up my tumblr, tweeting and watching far too many shows and movies.

I run workshops at a faith school, sparking discussion and educating girls about taboo subjects, creatively. A member of the school's PTFA, I aid them in writing sketches, creating posters for fundraising events and acting as a youth consultant.

I started working in Marketing at NOISE Festival in December 2013. I completed my six-month internship with them, as part of the Creative Employment Programme in June 2014 and was promoted to Marketing Assistant (from when I became the sole author of all social media marketing, website content and newsletters). From October 2014 to March 2016, I was Social Media and Content Manager.

My favourite aspect of working in Social Media for NOISE is live-tweeting our webinars and events. You can see an example of this here:

Working at NOISEfestival.com

I have a tendency to gush over new jobs for about a week, before hating them with every ounce of my being. I’ve been in the NOISE office for a few weeks now and I can confidently say that working here is in no way perpetuating the vicious cycle that is evident in my employment record. I (still) love it here and I plan on sticking around.

CEP Training Day - "Be Your Best Self"

Never would I have imagined, not just eating but actually savouring and enjoying chocolate, as preparation for a new job. I’m not sure what I expected from the training, but let me tell you, it was not that.
