WRITING

Ironically, I wasn’t sure what to write about writing… mine or in general. For a start, if you drop a line of Shakespeare, you’re basically in a big amount of rhythm crap. I’d know. Let’s not. I was King Oberon at 16. Life and thees got better. I hope you like my blog and that the introduction makes you want to wear jeggings forever and inhale the 2019 version of Sex In The City. I also hope you’re feeling comfy with me and in the pants of some of my best friends forever. We’re basically curled up on the couch, wondering where the white chocolate Tim Tams went. (I ate them). What can I say? My teenage diaries are a total embarrassment. Yet not. So I’ll share them. I’ll also type some mortifying but hopefully meaningful life moments that I wish I’d read post ‘in need of a bra’. Plus what goes in the paper. I get to work with some pretty fabulous people and companies. Shall I write a show? Okay.

CURRENT WRITING RESUME

SUMMARY

I have over 10 years of experience in Communication and freelance writing.

I hold a Bachelor of Communication (Communication Management and Expressive Arts) from Massey University, where I graduated in 2008 as a Massey Scholar (top student) and was named on the Dean’s List.

After gaining communication experience at an executive level, both in-house and agency side, I founded and directed an independently owned full service communications consultancy. It encompassed a wide variety of high profile international and national clients in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

I was invited back to Massey University as a guest lecturer in Communication before relocating to the UK, where I worked as a Front Of House Supervisor for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group.

 

I currently work as a freelance writer and have contributed editorial to various popular publications. Influenced by my background as an actor, I write for the monthly events and entertainment guide, Enjoy. 

 

As part of my website, I also write a women’s lifestyle blog, The Jeggings Sisterhood. It shares my personal journey with a focus on living a life that is abundant in all areas.
