As Wintle states, ''Experience in this field does not come overnight. Rather it is born out of long years of creative and technical know-how, and, above all, a love for the job and all that goes with it.” Having attained a degree in Television Production BA (Hons) I have since gained experience within the field of television broadcasting, having found substantial footing within a diverse industry which facilitates the various ambitions, skills and passion of those who dwell within it. As currently based at IMG studios working for Premier League Productions, I continue my work within live sports broadcasting. My Bachelor’s degree was dedicated to developing my core skills in creative development, production management and business strategy. As an innovative and industrious person, I recognise having the drive to push forward is not enough within this industry and, rather, knowledge, passion and experience are better and more valued commodities. With this in mind, my focus is in pursuing the active trade of this ever-growing industry primarily in the field of Production Management. In terms of personal interests, I have an avid interest in photography and photo editing as well as radio broadcasting having previously managed a local public radio channel and produced the content for regular live features. I am very passionate about sport/sport broadcasting for television, particularly in the field of football and rugby. I equally enjoy performance based works, whether theatrical in nature or competitive. Examples of which include previous experiences as had during my higher education within the Rotary Club hosted debate competitions as Chief Speaker and Chairman of our elected body. This discursive hobby also extends to writing, particularly that of fictional shorts, scripts and am in process of completing an Open University course in Creative Writing. Experience in teaching English and literature abroad has enriched this interest. 2018Locked Pro Plan feature
