My Story

Ever since I was young, I have dreamed of working in the media. Truly obsessive about the industry, sports coverage, entertainment and factual formats were the focus of my teenage life; studying them, analysing them and hoping one day I can be involved in making them.

After four years creating community reports on YouTube, I studied media at college before moving to MediaCityUK to take a degree in BA Television and Radio. I graduated in July 2018 with a first class honours degree following the production of my final project, a 30-minute radio documentary.

SinceAugust 2018, I have secured a number of contracts at the BBC, working at Children in Need, Radio Manchester, A Question of Sport and most recently Bitesize. Now a freelance researcher, I am excited to be exploring new opportunities, having recently worked with Studio Lambert and Viacom International Studios.

I made this video as I joined the industry in the summer of 2018

I released this video in August 2020 as part of an effort to improve understanding of neurodiversity

In 2017, I was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (also known as Asperger Syndrome). This provides a number of strengths for me, including a high attention to detail, strong observational skills and a methodical approach. I made this video to tell my tale and inspire others to open up about their mental health. It was viewed over 14,000 times across social media.

 

In the workplace, neurodiversity can offer real potential and I am a big supporter of ensuring those with disabilities are accommodated to help create an equal, diverse and fair society. Explore my new neurodiversity page here.

The media is about storytelling and providing an insight into real people's lives. You must therefore fulfil your duty of respecting their privacy and respecting their struggle, which without you would have no story.
