I’ve got a strong background in video journalism, especially for online, and currently work freelance for London Live, the i Paper, Metro.co.uk and various other outlets.
At London Live I craft self-shot packages for both TV and online – self-shooting, interviewing and editing pieces from idea to the finished product.
I’m also a freelancer at the i Paper where I produce original explainer social videos to accompany stories, as well as source social video at Metro.co.uk.
Previously I worked full-time for politics.co.uk as a self-shooting video journalist. From the mayoral elections to sex workers, I specialised in cutting through the spin to find the people at the heart of policies.
Prior to this I worked at local Kent TV station, KMTV. I self-shot daily packages on everything from politics to record breaking hammer-throwers, as well as working on playout, vision mixing and audio in the gallery.
I also worked at Broadcast3D.tv as a researcher and on-screen journalist, interviewing the likes of Arthur Brown and Martin Bell, and have undertaken a number of freelance video commissions for businesses in the South East and London.
I was also a scholarship intern at Sky News at their bases in London.
