About me

I'm an extremely enthusiastic, proactive and hardworking Researcher eager to enhance my skills base and progress my career to become a fully fledged shooting AP. Having worked and trained in Sports and News television, radio and online, I have gained valuable hands-on experience self-shooting using Canon XF305, editing with Avid and VCS, researching and in production management. I am confident researching stories, ensuring factual accuracy and am professional when liaising and communicating with talent and contributors. During my career, I have supported and complemented the editorial team to develop and produce original content, ideas and treatments for different media platforms. I can confidently generate ideas and develop these as engaging content for our audience. As a ambitious self-starter, my undoubted enthusiasm, skills and drive make me a valuable asset to any production team.
