Hello! I’m Jess, and I do a few things. My career path is unconventional, but the tie that binds all of my experiences and interests is social media, the Internet and technology.
As a true mid-millennial, I genuinely love all of these things. I’m known for my passion and enthusiasm. But after nearly 10 years in this industry, I’m constantly analysing them, too.
I try to balance the work I do creating strategies, running training sessions and producing content for my clients with researching and addressing our relationship with technology. I like to think this makes the marketing work I do more considered and valuable.
I’m entrepreneurial and up-to-date in my trends knowledge. I’m always learning and happy to share my insights in the media, on panels and in my writing. That’s includes non-fiction and factual writing, but it’s also the basis of my creative writing, too. Having worked with so many exciting startups and at the forefront of exciting uses of digital and media, I like to bring these unique real-life experiences into my fiction.
My background is in political activism and engagement and I think now more than ever is the time to truly assess our increasingly digital engagement with our news, our fellow voters and our politicians – because it brings both positives and negatives as we grow. My long-term and deep-rooted knowledge of the social media landscape means I do a lot of work on advising organisations on how best to manage the relationship between the online and offline worlds.
Please take a look at my social links below if you want to find out more about me as a person and not about me as the curated self on a professional website. If you like pictures of London and travel, go to Instagram first. If you like glitter and black clothes, try Pinterest. For miscellaneous musings, head to Twitter.
