About Vicki

I’ve been working in the Irish media for the past nine years in a variety of capacities. I started my career at the now sadly defunct KISS Magazine as editorial assistant in 2008, created, launched and edited INSIDER Magazine at the Irish Independent in March 2014, and now work as a freelance media professional across the realms of print, online, radio and television.

My bread and butter is my writing. In my time as a journalist, I’ve been an editor, columnist, sub-editor, features editor, beauty editor, photo editor, travel writer, celebrity interviewer, TV and movie critic, pop culture journalist, restaurant reviewer and – deep breath – I used to compile those “Who Wore It Better?” pages. The dream.

I now write about everything in the fields of lifestyle and pop culture, from human interest, sex and relationships to going out, online trends, film, television and travel.

I’m regularly published in the Irish Independent and all its supplements, including Weekend and Health & Living, the Sunday Times Style Ireland and the Sunday supplement, The Irish Examiner and its magazines Weekend and Feelgood, The Irish Times and its magazine, The Herald, Irish Tatler, Irish Country Magazine, U Magazine, Xpose Magazine, the Sunday Independent, Stellar, Buzzfeed, Thrillist and more. I’m also available for freelance copywriting and editing gigs.

I appear on TV3’s Midday panel from time to time, and on various shows on Radio 1, 2fm and Today FM. I’ve also been a reality TV judge, awards show host, event MC, public speaker, award-winning tweeter, and lots more.
