Video journalist. Passionate about the North East of England, the people that live here and the stories they have to tell.
I was the very first video journalist to be recruited for Sky's pioneering local news, sports and events website 'Sky Tyne and Wear' featuring video reports from across the region, from September 2011 to December 2013.
I began my career as a student at the University of Sunderland on the MA News Journalism course, a place I now have the pleasure of returning to as an academic tutor and newsroom supervisor, hoping to inspire the next generation of journalists.
Previous to this, I worked as a reporter for one of the UK’s top press agencies North News and Pictures, moving on to a role with ITV Tyne Tees as a newsroom journalist.
