I have extensive experience in arts administration, fine art and film exhibition/production, and freelance journalism/film-making. Within these industries, I have worked for large, well established organizations, small, privately owned businesses and performance venues, and freelance through my own multi-media production company. My most recent writing samples (available upon request) cover the history, trends, and ever-changing technology of art, culture, design and fashion. The blogging, copy writing, web content editing and publishing skills I have learned in these fast paced industries, which are considered leaders in usage of the new media marketing and PR techniques, will translate well to the needs of a number of industries. For the past year, I have been working as Web Editor/Fashion Blogger and PR Manager for Brighton Fashion Week. Because BFW is a not-for-profit, grass roots venture, I have been lucky enough to have loads of hands on experience in developing a brand ethos and identity. Being involved in the development of an idea has allowed me ample opportunities to explore the many sides of managing, producing, and promoting a brand and event.
