Angela is our main writer of copy, our proof reader and our editor-in-chief of content. Angela helps to manage our PR, advertising and the cohesion of our communications both internally and externally. A master of technology and management systems, Angela helps to keep our customer service and behind-the-scenes management working efficiently. She is also responsible for gaining support for our community through sponsorships and other partnerships which allow us to keep doing what it is that we do. She is passionate about providing support, guidance and educational resources for this community.
When she's not working you can find her snuggling her beloved dog Leeloo, or reading a nice big book. Because when you're writing regularly, you need to refuel your brain with new words written by vastly more talented people, right?
Angela has a wealth of experience in art, design, events and fashion. She’s worked at Etsy, launched her own brands and, with a passion for seeing creative people thrive at what they do, being an agent is the perfect profession for her.

Based in Sydney, Australia since November 2007, Leeloo is an online store, blog and community which supports young designers and emerging artists. We love hand made, we love recycled, up-cycled and green, we love ethically created goodies and limited edition, we love small run or one-of-a-kind, we love re-purposed and anything that prevents useable things going to landfill and given a new lease on life.
As a result of participating in a panel organised by Liane Rossler at the Sydney Jewish Museum, I was invited to turn my presentation into an article for Mama Mia.
