I have graduated with an Upper Second Class Honours Degree in BA (Hons) Journalism at Leeds Metropolitan University, which is a PTC and BCTJ accredited course. This education has been invaluable in building my skills and allowing me to develop my writing style, which I am able to easily adapt according to the tasks I am given. I am capable in working in print, radio and broadcast journalism. My time at university has also taught me shorthand and a variety of interview techniques.
I enjoy freelancing for websites and magazines, including; Tell Us Fashion, Shadowlocked, Wireless Magazine and Leeds Uncut. I also work as sub-editor for the Leeds Uncut website. As well as this I am employed as a copywriter for Blue Claw Marketing, where I write high quality and original content for a variety of high profile clients, such as Pokerstars and Mecca Bingo.
I can’t see myself working in any other industry than journalism and my work throughout the years has lead me to fall into several production and editing roles. I also have a passion for reading and admire the literature from fellow journalists, including; Hunter S. Thompson, Tom Wolfe, Truman Capote, Nick Davies and George Orwell.
I am a determined and hard-working individual with a drive to fulfil my potential.
