Barbi’s role as Social Media Executive sees her representing clients on platforms like Facebook and Twitter. She is a creative sort, making lots of graphics and writing catchy headlines to ensure posts stand out. Barbi loves working in an ever-changing industry and it keeps her on her toes.
Outside of work, you might bump into Barbi around Brixton or Camden – she will be the girl eating street food with a pint of Guinness or Milk Stout. Barbi has an interesting family background – her ancestry is half aristocrat and half gypsy. She used to wear odd socks to make a stand against society (she’s grown out of that habit now). That rebellious streak extended to her taste in music too – her first gig was a metal festival near her hometown in Hungary. She was only 13, so her mum put on some thick black eyeliner and went along to supervise. In her life before Make Me Local, Barbi was a talented Barista, so ask her to make you a coffee when you come into the office.
