Work history

Editor

Sky

Jul 2014
  • Isleworth, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • I began work on Sky Sports News as a sub-editor in 2014, working mostly on producing output for the rolling news channel. During this time I learnt the post-production side of the job and have since transitioned into an Editor role. This has allowed me to take promos and features from the ideas stage through production and editing as a solo project, streamlining the process.

Assistant Producer

Sky

Sep 2011 - Jun 2014

  • Full Time
  • As an assistant producer on the flagship Soccer Saturday show, I was responsible for conceptualising, planning and producing content in preparation for live shows. This included creating opening sequences on a rotational basis with my colleagues. I also played an important role during live shows, working within the gallery and taking on responsibility for noting goals and cutting highlights to match these within the tight deadlines associated with being on air. I initially moved to London from Jersey in September 2011 to undertake a role as a production junior for Sky Sports working across a variety of shows. These shows included NFL, Golf, Football, Cricket and a host of Sky Sports News shows.
