I am 25 years old and living in the big smoke. I love London and all it brings, although my heart belongs to Birmingham. I really really want a cat. Growing up I spent a year living in Munich. I am quarter swiss and a quarter polish.
I’m a Rabbit
I am proud to be a fully fledged social media geek which is why I fit in nicely at Rabbit, where I am a digital account director. I spend my days thinking a lot about the social networks people like to spend their free time using…and the ones they haven’t yet discovered, how they can use them to best fit their needs.
What got me here
I graduated from Cardiff University in 2009 with a BA in Journalism, film and media. A few years on, I’m proud some of the things I predicted in my dissertation, Social networking and music: The impact of MySpace as a digital platform for discovery and distribution, are coming true.
I always believed social networking and digital media were the way forward and had a continued desire to be involved..daily, hourly, always, instinctively. I have always submerged myself within social media in my personal life as well as being lucky enough to be one of the first to study it too.
I love practicality – things have to work. Geekily, I love spending time figuring out how to make things better. At times this makes me a nightmare to be around (like when I get on a cleaning mission and I can’t sit still and clear things away before you’ve finished with them).
At other times being a slight perfectionist can be good. I relish improving the usability of things or editing and rearranging them to make more sense. Sometimes this persona flies out of the window and I have an urge to kick back (I like gin and dancing). By jumping off the idealist bandwagon you get to see things in a new light.
