  • Description

    Hi, I'm Lee, and I uncover and tell stories for change, having worked as a journalist for professional communities; a grassroots community organiser in south London; and, most recently, a communications officer in international development. I want to put my skills in the service of those building projects and communities in areas not enjoying the full fruits of tourism. And, at the same time, I want to collaborate with you, and continue to flourish myself, further developing my skills in social media, blogging and shooting film. Looking forward to meeting you.

    I have many reviews on Couchsurfing (couchsurfing.com/people/leebaker08) and LinkedIn (linkedin.com/in/lee-baker-communicator/)

    I have worked as a journalist for over 10 years, interviewing, researching and writing news and feature articles. As a Communications Officer for an international development consultancy for the last two, I have built a brand story for an organisation, creating social media banners and marketing materials using desktop publishing tools; and videos and animations I scripted, storyboarded, shot and edited. I have knowledge of how to maximise engagement in your projects through copywriting and blogging for Search Engine Optimisation.
