About

 

I’m a writer in my mid-20s, and yes that means I’m a millennial. This means I know everything about social media, have an app for everything, and can Google my way to an answer in under 15 seconds. But, despite popular millennial beliefs, I am not arrogant nor am I entitled. I believe if you want something you’ve got to work damn hard to get it. So that’s exactly what I’m doing.

In typical millennial fashion, I decided working for someone else wasn’t exactly my style, and wanted to operate a creative content business on my own terms.

So I quit my job in Sydney, moved to Mudgee in regional NSW (with newly acquired nbn, thank you very much), and started working with a new range of clients, both long-term and one-off, to nail their content briefs.

What I’ve Done…

My background includes being Content Manager of an SEO firm, as well as an Editor, Content Marketing Manager, and Social Media Coordinator at a media publishing agency. I’ve worked in print (my favourite), digital (my second favourite), events, journalism, email marketing, website content, product description, bespoke publishing, native content, and more. You name it, I’ve probably been assigned to it at some stage in my career.

Why I Quit…

I realised being assigned work that didn’t inspire me, with clients that were happy staying inside the lines, was really bad for my creativity. By flying solo, I get to choose my own projects, work with brands I’m actually excited about, and get weird with brands who like to push their limits.
