About

I have always had a strong attachment to sport because of my family and upbringing but my passion goes further than watching or playing.

Having worked on a variety of PR projects  – I am building towards my dream of becoming a full time sports broadcaster.

My talent and hard work has seen me work  for multiple clients including BBC 5 Live Sport Extra, BBC Sport, talkSPORT network, Livewire Sport, Wimbledon/AELTC, Give Me Sport Women and more.  I see myself as a multi-faceted broadcaster utilising my broad knowledge of all sport.

I have a real passion for audio, video and online/streaming and know what different audiences and platforms demand.

As well as being available for hire for broadcast and voice over work, I am an engaging host and anchored a number of events.

I believe in giving back by supporting organisations such as Kick it Out ‘Raise Your Game’ helping inspiring the next generation and want to see equality across the sports landscape.
