Get to Know me

I entered the games industry as an independent journalist where I rapidly ascended the field, writing for more than a dozen online and print publications before pursuing a full-time career in community management. There I combined my love for online storytelling and content creation with my passion for connecting audiences. My approach to social media management is heavy on visual mediums with an emphasis on creating a strong brand voice backed by carefully curated influencers and new media strategy.
