RUBY NORMAN CURRAN

Ruby is an award-winning, neurodiverse writer and performer. She is a StorySLAM winner for The Moth podcast, an award winning short story author, a published poet, an award winning advertising copywriter, Google RARE alum and is one of Campaign's 2021 Future Leaders. 

She works for ad agency Droga5, and is also the co-founder and host of Sledgehammer, a music video night based in London and Amsterdam. She is the host of Burst, a podcast she created with "influential feminist" Laura Jordan Bambach (due out next year) and the co-creator of The Fever Dream Journal.

When Ruby was a teenager she used to buy sheets of edible rice paper and insert them into books in Waterstones. She would return later, rip the 'pages' out and eat them in store, to see if anyone would stop her. 

They never did.

This says a lot about who she is as a person.
