Content Lead

As a writer I have a postgraduate MLitt degree in Journalism and have contributed articles to broadsheet newspapers such as The Times and The Herald, while being able to assume a variety of house styles and whether that been for news, sports, showbiz, or anything in between.

In terms of video I have been trained by the BBC as a self-shooting producer and had content feature on primetime TV, also able to undertake all work from conception to fruition, including editing and interviewing. As a digital native I have created social-friendly shorter content as well as longer short films and features.

In terms of photography my work has also featured on the BBC, STV, and in The Herald and the Daily Record. Meanwhile I have pioneered interactive and VR content for the BBC and Red Bull, able to push into innovative content types and work with stakeholders to produce the strongest possible results with an audience focus.

Find some of my video and photographic work below.
