There’s no WME Without ‘Me’: Introducing Content Writer Trish
Each week we’re taking a squiz into the WME culture and having a chat with a different team member. In our first instalment we met Account Manager Zach – this week, we’re hopping over to the content team to introduce you to Trish (aka Patricia), one of our senior writers.
Name: Trish O’Loughlin
Role: Internal Marketing Writer
Tell us a little bit about yourself…
I’m a bush baby at heart, born and bred in Alice Springs. I have a massive family – apparently every single one of my stories involves at least three cousins. According to my dad, I taught myself how to read when I was three years old and I’ve harboured an ongoing love affair with the written word ever since. I’m passionate about Indigenous issues, art and culture, and anything with beetroot in it.
When was the first time you heard about ~the internet~?
I have a vague memory of sitting with my brother and sister at the family computer and cyber-chatting with bots on the internet. We thought we were hilarious.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The opportunity to write for so many different projects in so many different styles means I get to continually massage those creative juices and keep the cranium stimulated. From EDMs to blog posts to press releases, it’s great to have the chance to explore so many different avenues of writing. Also, working in an industry that’s perpetually evolving keeps things really interesting – there’s always something new to be learnt.
Attempting to dance like Beyoncé, poring through the latest edition of Frankie, baking pretty treats, anything to do with live theatre (former performer, nowadays just a spectator), binge-watching Netflix.
I was once a (paid) back-up dancer for Tom Ballard.
