About

Hailing from the beautiful climes of Newcastle upon Tyne, I suffered from severe cases of wanderlust and verbosity from an early age. Seemingly designed mainly to explore the world and talk, a career talking about exploring the world made sense really. A degree in modern languages from the University of Cambridge, a year spent working as a print journalist and hosting an MTV show in Buenos Aires, a little hike up Kilimanjaro (funded by writing for magazines about said little hike) and a good deal of talking and exploring later, and I can be found presenting music, arts and entertainment news for major broadcasters and online. Between MTV, ITN and 4Music, I’ve had the honour of interviewing some of the biggest dogs in the biz, backstage at festivals, on the red carpet and while having Colin Farrell lick prawn cocktail (yes, it’s the 50s) off my dress at press junkets (not actually that long a story).

Alongside regular daily presenting duties across 4Music’s Box Plus network and ITV2’s FYI Daily, 2015 saw me take the helm of the all-important Saturday morning slot for Disney Channel UK, and front cycling coverage for Channel 4, BT Sport, Eurosport and Sky Sports. Thrown in at the deep end in the world of radio, I was approached and quickly trained up by the Beeb to take the hot seat for a number of shows on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, while also being given incredible live opportunities to host events and branded content for some huge clients, including Virgin, Apple, Boots, Toyota and very.co.uk.

Trained to shoot (Canon 5D, Sony EX1), edit (Avid, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere) and produce to tight newsroom turnarounds, and with strong editorial vision and creative flair when script-writing, as an ITN reporter I’m responsible for the whole process from start to finish. As an aspiring documentarian, I’ve taken this holistic approach to writing, producing and presenting shorts delving into topics I feel passionate and curious about. Just ask, I’d love to tell you about them.

Ultimately, I hope to follow in the footsteps of some of my favourite broadcasters (Louis Theroux, Dawn O’Porter and Reggie Yates, I’m looking at you, you beauts) to become a name you can trust to bring the most exciting and interesting topics to the screen, making you smile along the way.

I like dancing, playing football, Almodovar films, the colour turquoise, Beyonce and tiny animals wearing clothes.
