Online Editor at GQ and GLAMOUR
Conde Nast
Nov 2011 - Apr 2014
GQ & GLAMOUR
Overseeing a team; writing; editing; overseeing content flow; developing the voice of both brands online; working closely with contributors; overseeing video production; monitoring Google Analytics; generating concepts to bring in ad revenue; managing social media channels, managing budgets; creative direction; working with the magazines to create cohesive content; working with brands to create innovative ideas and advertorials. I also helped rebuild and relaunch both websites (which launched in February 2014). Strengths: I am a hard working, outgoing individual with a positive attitude. I back up my creative skills with strong organizational abilities, which means the ideas I create get implemented. I am also a problem solver and, having been taught from a fine art perspective, know that strong concepts are key. As the former online editor for two major magazine brands, I am able to juggle work and understand the pressures of working in a fast-paced environment with a small team. I am passionate about ideas, writing, fashion, lifestyle, travel and design. While my feet are firmly planted in the editorial department, I also understand the business side of a magazine brand and have experience in generating good ideas to bring in web traffic and ad revenue.
