About Me

I'm a 22-year-old freelance based in Bristol, where I've lived for the majority of my life. Currently, I contribute articles to The Sunday Independent. Various interests of mine have taken me down different avenues in my life, be it in the form of sport, music or even comedy. However, the passion I hold dearest is writing, and so I welcome you to my website which showcases my writing ability as well as my broadcast portfolio.

I have work experience in a few fields of journalism, such as print newspapers, online content creating and even filming and editing experience at BT Sport. Below you will find an option to download my CV in PDF form and further down I will expand on the work experiences previously mentioned.

 

Work Experience

2017 - 2018

Filmed and edited Aldershot Town's home fixtures for the BT Sport 'National League Highlights Show' throughout the 17/18 season. By doing so I honed my content creating skills to a very high standard that was broadcast by BT Sport. 

2017 - 2018 - 2019

I have completed three separate work placements at Bristol Live. The first of these took place in 2017 during my first year of university. I utilised multiple social media tools to find and research potential news stories in addition to contacting users for interview requests. I also helped with the crime reporting, attending trials and contributing to Bristol Live's liveblog.

 

My other two placements saw me join the sports desk. These placements resulted in much more output as I published, on average, six to ten news stories a day. These covered multiple sports as I become a valuable member of the newsroom. I also attended press conferences at Bristol City where I interviewed manager, Lee Johnson and a Chelsea loanee, Jay Da Silva.

2019 - Present

As of September 2019, I've been asked to contribute articles and feature to The Sunday Independent. Covering the South West of England, from Penzance to Bristol, The Indy has chosen me as the first port of call for any sports news in Bristol as well as giving me the freedom to independently source and complete my own features for their weekly newspaper.
