As a writer, editor and journalist, Chris Harrigan brings a small forest plantation’s worth of media expertise to his role as Fireside’s Editorial Lead.
For a number of years he was the Editor of Smith Journal, an honest-to-goodness print publication made out of paper and ink. Smith gave the celebrity treatment to people with singular, sometimes harebrained but always interesting obsessions. It was nice to look at, though people tell Chris they read it for the articles as well.
Chris is also a published writer, having appeared in New York Magazine, Buzzfeed, The Guardian, The Age, frankie and Junkee, among other publications that may or may not still exist. (Publishing’s a fickle industry.)
In recent years, Chris has used his storytelling skills to help brands big and small connect with larger audiences. He’s worked on narrative-shaping projects for some of the country’s largest corporations, but sleeps more soundly when he’s working with organisations making a positive impact on the world.
