About me

I am a self-motivated, enthusiastic freelance journalist with a passion for music and celebrity journalism to inform the public on the latest music and celebrity trends. I have a strong interest in informing the public on current affairs that would be of interest, and relaying it back in a form that is engaging and informative. I currently have experience using Adobe Creative Cloud, Final Cut Pro, Audacity, In-design, Photoshop and P Squared. I also obtain writing skills for print, radio, and television, and presenting and directing. I have obtained experience for radio at Inspiration FM and for print at the South London Press. Now I am looking to gain experience in the digital industry.
