Creative Content Producer

What's your main area of work at Hubbub?

I joined Hubbub to work primarily on the In Our Nature campaign taking place across Manchester, which is conveniently where I live and work. My job is to document what’s happening in Manchester through a variety of media formats, tell engaging stories about local people and encourage more sustainable ways of living across the city and beyond by creating playful, meaningful and inspiring content. My role also extends into the wider Hubbub team, where I consult on broader comms, assist with managing our social media channels and help out with anything and everything to do with multimedia. 

What's your favourite campaign and why?

I’m a little bit biased as my work is so Manchester-centric, but I love how the In Our Nature campaign is bringing together so many great Hubbub strategies and ideas, and then blending them with new initiatives that we haven’t tried out before. So far it’s been a great way to bring something to the city whilst building up some brilliant ideas from local residents about what’s missing from Manchester and what they would really benefit from. From my perspective, it’s also great to be involved in so many different projects and initiatives and to be able to think about how to capture the stories that stem from them in unique and equally exciting ways.

What did life before Hubbub look like?

I started off in music and then slowly gravitated toward all things visual. After university I spent some time working with a charitable research project where I travelled around working with musicians in a few different countries, and I collaborated on a couple of multimedia art installations on the side. After moving to Manchester I started working as a freelance photographer & videographer, where I collaborated with a bunch of different clients, and I also worked on some of my own short documentaries & films. I’ve long been passionate about the environment and I’ve always sought out opportunities where I could tie that passion into the work that I do, so Hubbub provided me with the perfect avenue to do just that. 

What else are you passionate about?

I started running in 2020 so that’s probably my newest thing. I love playing music and going to gigs. I’m a huge film nerd, I love being outdoors in general and I have a camera with me pretty much wherever I go. Also dogs, food and whiskey. 

What would you eat if you only had one meal left?

An absurd amount of truffley pasta, or a giant paneer curry.
