About me

Writing // Art // Animals // Finance // Intellect // Spirit // Fun

Hi, I’m Amanda Leek. I blog about these ^ things, and I’m available to create content on ^ these things. 

Specifically, I ace print, digital and video journalism, marketing and research. I’m also smashing it at store management, sales and events, and all the admin ever. I like learning new things and I like making things fun. I love animals, and I’m pretty good with them. (Except I’m scared of spiders. They’re creepy.)

I’m based in south England, I’m from London, and I spent 5 years in New Zealand.

I’m most proud of…
