experience

I write and create memes about must-see TV to get audiences talking on social media for AMCCBS Drama and CBS Reality in the UK region, for Sundance South Africa and for AMC Africa.

Previously, I’ve written about Pokémon for BuzzFeed, about Marvel films for MCM Buzz, and about cute robots that will eventually rule the world for I F*cking Love Science.

I’ve been a Waterstones bookseller, a spelling bee finalist, and a Games Maker for the London 2012 Olympics but the meme-making is my joie de vivre.
