Our Introducing… series is all about saying hello to the newest members of the Sideshow team. And what better way to do it than with a quick fire, eight-question Q&A round? First up is Senior Writer (and trumpet player!) Freddie Harrison…
Who are you?
I'm Freddie Harrison — a writer, editor, content strategist, amateur podcaster, and big believer in the occasional Oxford comma.
What's your role?
I'm a Senior Writer (I may also be uploading this post…)
What's your background?
I've been writing for almost ten years — as a journalist, as a copywriter, and as an editor of an award-winning university website. In that time I've picked up awards and recognition from HEIST, CIM and Brand Impact for projects I've worked on.
Where have you come from?
Previously I was a copywriter, working for everyone from big universities and software developers, to financial advisors and charities.
What are your first impressions of Sideshow?
The pace here is astonishingly fast, but everyone pulls their weight and it's great to be among a group of people all working towards a common goal. We all want to deliver the very best work for our clients.
What's different here?
On any given day I could be writing video scripts, adverts or product brochures. It's probably the most varied work I've done, and that's what keeps it interesting.
What's one thing that we don't know about you yet?
I play the trumpet and the guitar (and a few other instruments really badly). And I've never, ever cooked an egg. I gave you a few things, there. My copy is far better than my maths.
What are you most looking forward to about working at Sideshow?
I was writing for Sideshow before I joined full-time, so I think I've already got a good idea of what to expect — I'm mostly excited to be doing more of it! And the famed Monday Breakfast Club…
