About Me

I am a freelance multimedia journalist based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. I'm mainly interested in all things politics and social affairs. Usually, I cover stories with written copy, stills and sometimes moving image, although I'm not foreign to audio-based work either.

I believe that, when done correctly, journalism is a great tool to hold those in power to account and make a change for those who need it. Whilst I may only be at the start of my journey, I hope to make a difference in some way.
