Ruby Barry is a Commercial Content Writer for Bauer Media and specialises in anything creative, whether that be fashion, film or arts and crafts. When she was three years old, her parents caught her painting the entirety of their patio with a glitter/water-based mixture, so it's safe to say she sees the world as her canvas.
After taking an interest in acting from a young age, Ruby studied Drama at the University of Essex, where she discovered a love for playwriting. Her work has been showcased in places like the Lakeside Theatre, and in Theatre Lab’s Digital Arts festival. Playwriting developed into an interest in journalism, which brought her to Bauer.
During her time as an intern at Bauer Media, Ruby became known for her long-form fashion articles, where she would recreate characters outfits from famous shows, such as The Queen's Gambit, The Crown and Sex Education, for viewers to buy. After joining as a full-time member, she continues to scout out the best dupes for the newest TV show outfits, to a nerd-level degree.
Before working at Bauer, Ruby had a strange array of jobs, such as a perfumery assistant, a social media executive, and a cattery cleaner. However, she has found her calling writing for Bauer’s audiences.
Outside of work, you will find Ruby scrounging for cheap theatre tickets, annoying her cats or painting abstract art. Not on the patio though, she’s been banned from that.
