MEET THE TEAM: Marie Madden – Editor, Wino & Music Nerd


Marie is Editor-In-Chief at Lovin Media Group and has such an unhealthy obsession with stationary that she was given whiteboard markers for her last birthday.

When she’s not plotting a takeover over the global media landscape on Google Sheets, she’s usually sipping a nice bottle of red, listening to some Pearl Jam and gorging on cheese.
