Work experience

💻 Technology & VC

Content Associate

Product Hunt*, Remote (San Francisco office) – (October 2023 - February 2023)*

Entrusted with the daily management of the Twitter, LinkedIn, and Threads accounts. My role demanded a deep understanding of the tech industry, and I contributed significantly to our social media strategy with valuable insights. I consistently demonstrated efficiency and diligence, ensuring that our content was well-crafted and timely posted.

Head of Research & Development

Phavour*, Hartlepool, UK – (July 2020 - Present)*

Joined the founding team at Phavour as an intern working on User Experience. This role allowed me to first develop my skills and design the entire customer support journey for the app. After this, the role turned into a full-time position, initially working on user experience and the product – working on the app itself during COVID. This role culminated in being placed in charge of Research & Development, as the platform began its focus on the US market. Phavour is a platform to find one-off, freelance, and part-time work, mainly aimed at students. We also participated in B2B sales of our technology, in a "choose your own" fashion.

Startup Development Principal

DECKO*, Global – (October 2021 - Present)*

DECKO works alongside startups to help craft their vision, story, and message from the get go. This then gets transferred into deck creation for decks investors want to see, and other startup development services. Working as a principal, I work directly alongside founders and designers to see the company’s vision, messaging, and story come to life through a pitch deck and other company assets.

Venture Partner

Timeless VC*, Global – (February 2022 - Present)*
