I learnt my craft studying Journalism at the University of Lincoln, on top of volunteering at the community station Siren FM. When I graduated I did a season with BBC Three Counties Sport, before deciding life was too short and I’d rather be travelling instead. I ended up teaching English to noisy but adorable kids in South Korea, and travelled around a fair bit after that too.

Finally when the savings started to dry up I decided to come back and have another crack at this ‘real life’ thing, and I was lucky enough to land my first proper news job here at Mix.

In my spare time I produce Drum and Bass, and have been known to enjoy a game of pool and a pint at the local. Sometimes two....(games, not pints).
