I spend the majority of my time either creating content for clients, researching effective marketing to improve my own work, researching what’s popular now, and staying on top of current trends.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Animation and I try to incorporate that wherever I can within my work. During my time studying I learned a lot more than just how to animate. I learned how to use software such as Photoshop, and how to improve my drawing and technical skills. I also learned how to identify a demographic, and then how to appeal to that specific audience.
I decided to work in social media because it is a digital ecosystem, evolving every day. The team I work with is another great reason. Everyone on the team has their own amazing skills so we’re all helping each other to make everyone’s work the best it can be.
As for hobbies, I like to challenge myself and learn new things. So, after having studied animation for 5 years, that’s what I do in my spare time! I am either animating, creating digital artworks, researching new techniques of animation, drawing, or learning new software. But whatever I learn in my spare time, I always try to find different ways to incorporate that into my work.
So, overall I’m a very creative person who loves a challenge.
Currently, I’m the lead on Lakeside and Brentwood Karting’s social media marketing. This means I’m making posts for each one of their social media accounts, editing photos, videos, writing promotional emails, and I am currently learning and setting up an automated chatbot for Facebook Messenger.
