I’m a junior web developer and former freelance TV producer and news journalist. With more than 15 years experience in creative industries under my belt, I’ve now set my sights on combining these skills with twenty-first century tech.
While my interest in computers dates back to receiving an Amiga 500 at some point in the early 1990s, I had never imagined my career would lead down a technological path until recently. After seeing close family and friends entering the world of development I decided to look into it myself. An online course or two later, I was hooked on coding and my journey towards becoming a developer was set.
The excitement of learning something new every day and the immense satisfaction of overcoming problems have sparked an enthusiasm I’ve not felt professionally for years.
With the confidence and training that an intensive bootcamp at General Assembly have instilled in me, I’m eager to make the move into a team that will help me develop personally and draw on the professional experience I have. Feel free to drop me a line and check out some of my work below.

I have fifteen years solid professional experiences behind me. After working as a journalist for three years in Hertfordshire between 2004 and 2007, where I qualified as a senior and reported on everything from criminal trials to local sports events, I embarked upon more than a decade as a freelance TV producer.
During this time I worked across a broad range of projects and in various genres including some of the highest profile shows on TV, such as Have I Got News For You, The One Show and Weakest Link. My particular forte was comedy entertainment.
These experiences have given me a fierce work ethic, a reputation for creative thinking and problem solving and endless celebrity anecdotes! Check out my linkedin below for a full breakdown of my professional and educational experience
