I was born in Southend on Sea in September 1996. I was raised, and went to school in Canvey Island, Essex, taking my GCSE’s at the Cornelius Vermuyden School. I returned to Southend on Sea to attend college at South Essex College, achieving 3 A-Levels in English Literature, Media Studies and Geography. I am now entering the final year of my 3 year BA Multimedia Journalism course at the University of Essex in Colchester. I have spent time on work placements at the Essex Chronicle weekly newspaper in Chelmsford, where I have had work published, ITV Anglia in Norwich, and BBC Essex in Chelmsford. I cover all angles of journalism but, I specialise and enjoy sport journalism in particular. I have been part of a project within my course, which has seen the creation & production of a large magazine, as well as a project in cohesion with the Colchester Gazette.
I am an avid sports fan, and am particularly passionate about my local football teams Southend United, and Tottenham Hotspur. I have written about the latter in articles I have had published for the University of Essex student newspaper, Albert (now called Rebel). In addition to being a content writer for the paper, I am also the Deputy Sports Editor, working alongside the editorial team to produce quality work for the paper, particularly in my sports section, and to ensure the publication of the paper runs smoothly.
As of November 2016, I also co-host a football preview and review show for the the University of Essex radio channel, Rebel.
I am also a fully qualified FA Level 1 coach, and when I can during the summer and Easter breaks, I coach at a local football activity and development programme for 4-16 year old’s in my hometown of Canvey Island.
