I am an enthusiastic and adaptable journalist, recently graduating from City University London. My subject interests lie with home affairs and technology, but I thoroughly enjoy working with data for a multimedia output.
I am also a regular blogger, with my thoughts and interests noted on The Everything Else Blog, which you can visit here.

BBC News Channel, Shadow Producer
I have assisted in the production of BBC News Channel broadcasts and gained valuable newsroom experience. I organised and contact interviews, and used ENPS and Jupiter software. I also observed in the gallery and studio.
City OnAir, Editor
2013 - 2014
As editor, it was my responsibility to manage the team of contributors, as well as the station output in live and pre-recorded shows. The role demanded time management, out of the box thinking as well as a high level of skill in producing content quickly and efficiently. For more information, visit the dedicated page.
Forerunner Records, PR & Media Manager
2011 - 2012
Forerunner Records is a student led record label at Birmingham Metropolitan College. In my final year of music studies, I took on the role as head of PR and media. I began interviewing each of the artists signed to the label for a weekly podcast before taking on immediate roles in organising events and personnel.
At the end of the year, I helped organise a big showcase event. My role was to arrange two VIP guest presenters and ten performances across two stages in different rooms, while negotiating a 'roaming audience' of over 200 people.
Radio & Video Production
I am familiar with Burli, Spot On, ENPS, Jupiter, Final Cut Pro X, Microsoft Office/iWork, Adobe (Audition CS5, CS6 and CC, Muse, Dreamweaver and InDesign).
I have experience using Studer radio broadcasting equipment, as well as other analogue and digital sound desks. I have worked with Tricaster television image mixers and keying software, as well as robotic camera control (P/F/Z).
