The television side of my career started behind the scenes when I was part of ITV Studio’s Runner Pool. Based in Manchester and Leeds I was a runner / logger for shows, such as:
– Love me, Love My Home (pilot) – Countdown – Super Tiny Animals – May the Best House Win – Guess the Star (pilot) and Gino d’Acampo’s There’s No Taste Like Home
I also did studio, gallery and post-production running.
Since training to be a broadcast journalist I have also had lots of on-air experience in live two-ways, reporting on packages and studio presentation.
Here’s my TV presenting and reporting showreel:
For more depth into the pieces I have shot and edited. Here are some examples of my reports, starting with the most recent:

Skip left in Blue Badge space.
A skip had been left in an accessible parking space at the University of Central Lancashire. This forces disabled drivers to park further away from their lecture building.
