I'm a writer, editor and communications buff based in Melbourne. I’ve enjoyed an awesome few years working in numerous roles within the communications industry, and now I’m launching my full-time freelancing career.
After completing a Bachelor of Arts in Communications majoring in Journalism at the University of Technology, Sydney, I started out working in Public Relations for a Sydney-based lifestyle PR agency. I was then head-hunted to work for a luxury hotel chain in Bangkok, where I oversaw all PR activities for four hotels across Thailand.
Since returning to Australia, I’ve edited and written for a number of publications. From 2015-16, I was the Deputy Editor of Hijacked, an online publication for tertiary students, published by oOh! Media. I’ve also written articles for both Broadsheet Sydney and The Upsider, exploring everything from cheap eats to luxe dining rooms, tertiary education to food security, and hotel gyms to glamping.
I returned to Public Relations a couple of years ago, taking up the role of PR & Marketing Manager for TerraCycle Australia and New Zealand. I left this role late last year to kick off my freelancing journey, which I am absolutely relishing thus far. I love the diversity of working on a freelance basis and the challenge of being delivered a meaty brief.
In a nutshell, I can work across a number of different projects and offer a pretty varied range of skills. I've independently created and executed PR and marketing campaigns, written press materials and copy for marketing collateral and websites, managed social media campaigns, and spoken at numerous events. I’ve worked with all kinds of industries, from restaurants and hotels to recycling, so can readily adapt to a client’s brief, tone and style. I can also deliver very sound research skills, clean and concise copy, and a highly professional and confident attitude when liaising with clients. I am generally a relaxed and calm worker, but I also really thrive under pressure. Given my background in journalism, I do love a tight deadline.
I am available for freelance writing, editing, proofreading, PR, marketing and social media projects, and would jump at the chance to work on your brief.
