Do you want to know the first-ever lesson I was taught at journalism school? People LOVE to talk about themselves. I use that all the time; if you’re a nervous small-talker, try it, it works.
I’ll spare you my entire life story and give you the speed-date version instead. Here’s what I’d hope you’d suss about me, if we only had five minutes on the clock:
- I’m always thinking about balance and perspective.
Professionally, that means that the best job in the world would offer me zero comfort if I became a nightmare to work with, hated coming into the office, or if it came at the expense of everything else I consider important. It means working really hard, but learning to recognise when it’s time to call it a night. And believing that a good career is not just about the job you wouldn’t quit if you won the lottery, but the tea-round full of people who’ll never let you stay too serious for too long.
- I really do love my job – creating branded video content for digital and social platforms. And, of course, writing and photography.
- I’m otherwise most likely to be found: gymming, brunching, browsing, writing lists, visiting the Sticks, quite happily doing nothing in particular, and writing at 2am.
I work as a photographer, video producer, video editor, and a features and copywriter – and I also have experience presenting on-screen. I’m kitted out with my Sony A7s, and MacBook Pro featuring Final Cut Pro X and PhotoShop.
I’m based in London, with regular visits to my roots in Somerset.
