EXPERIENCE

2019 – 2020, London UK

Editor | POPSUGAR

Popsugar is the world’s leading female lifestyle brand, reaching 300 million people every month. In my role as editor, I was based in Popsugar’s London office, creating SEO-optimised, clickable lifestyle content for both the UK and US markets. I primarily worked on the entertainment, health and fitness, and beauty verticals, producing a combination of service-driven articles and long form op-eds.

 

A key part of my role was establishing relationships between Popsugar and key brands, artists, and studios in the entertainment industry in the UK. This was to facilitate talent interviews, set visits, and organiseadvanced screeners to ensure timely editorial coverage.

Editor | Contiki Marketing Lab

Contiki Marketing Lab is a marketing agency that's responsible for all global marketing at Contiki Holidays, a leading travel company for 18-35 year olds. All digital content is written, produced, filmed, shot, edited, shared, and optimised by the dedicated team of specialists. The goal is to reach a media-skeptic audience, speaking to and engaging consumers at every stage of their path to purchase. And that’s where I come in.

Managing the global editorial platform, six-two, I worked with a team of talented writers, influencers and content creators to publish daily content that will inspire you to book your next adventure immediately, if not sooner. A large priority in this role was also managing a contract website developer, to ensure a seamless migration to a new website.

Acting Editor | Urban List

Urban List is one of Australia’s leading digital lifestyle publishers for millennials, reaching over 3 million people every month. In my time at The Urban List, I climbed the ranks from intern to acting editor, delivering exceptional lifestyle content daily. From creative ideation, to managing the social and editorial content for the Sydney site, I was responsible for creating, commissioning, editing, and uploading SEO-driven content, and leading the local SEO content strategy. 

Previously, as digital content producer, my role involved client management and implementation of branded campaigns — from the early ideation and planning stages, to roll out and reporting. This also included boosting and optimising paid social posts. I worked with brands such as American Express, Audi, Kathmandu, Hendricks Gin, Village Roadshow Pictures, Campari, and more.

In all of my roles at Urban List, I was in charge of budgeting and managing a team of contributors, including briefing and supervising photo and video shoots, and mentoring junior writers.
