In other news, I am now doing content, social media, and community management for an AI tech podcasting platform. The pandemic has been a disorientating experience for freelancers, so I'm very glad to have found a very hands-on role. You can find me over here.
Pinch me, I've written my first ever cover stories. Not just one, but two! I profiled the Canadian teen dance prodigy and viral hitmaker Tate McRae, and charismatic Liverpudlian producer and songstress Jetta. Expect: conversations on musical journeys, fascinating relationships with songwriting, self-expression, and the art of bearing your soul.

I worked with Barbour International for the launch of their A/W Women's Quilt Collection, which was a lovely experience. Not only is Autumn my favourite season, but Barbour quilts bring back a hefty ton of nostalgia: I recall my mum reaching for her jacket before dashing out of the house, while my dad would keep his lighter and pack of Marlboro cigarettes in his front pocket. Their Barbour jackets draped across the back of their chairs as we sat and had Dim Sum in various restaurants every Sunday afternoon. Talk about memories. Asides from content creation, I also got to chat about what 'originality' means to me in BI's campaign. You can find it on their blog here.
