Why news broadcasting?
I enjoy the buzz of chasing a story and have always been interested in current affairs. I also enjoy the theatre of television and working with pictures – it is a very powerful medium.
Where else would have viewers seen or heard you before?
I worked for BBC Radio York before joining Tyne Tees Television as a reporter based in Middlesbrough. 2 years after joining i moved to Meridian TV as a sub-editor in Southampton and then later a reporter based in the Thames Valley..

Cycling, reading and partying.
