Since qualifying as a broadcast journalist in 2009, I've worked in newsrooms at some of the UK's biggest radio groups - appearing on stations as wide-ranging as Smooth Radio, Key 103 and BBC Radio 2, with equally diverse audience profiles and news formats.
Following a spell at BBC Radio Cumbria, I spent 18 months reading breakfast news for Mercia (now Free Radio) and Orion Media's regional Gold output under the pseudonym Nick Harris. I joined BBC Radio Oxford in 2011, later returning to early mornings to present news on the Phil Gayle breakfast show.

I've received several award nominations for my radio work in the last two years - picking up 'Journalist of the Year' nods at the BBC Partnership, Orion Media and 2010 and 2011 Midlands Media Awards. I also won the 'Best Short TV Package' prize at the BJTC Awards (pictured, right) for a television news report on a cancer-diagnosing dog.
As well as being an experienced newsreader, I'm a seasoned reporter - having interviewed everyone from government ministers to Sir Bobby Charlton. I also secured the first interview with the owners of the now-world-famous cat thrown into a wheelie bin in the West Midlands.

I also have extensive production experience, ranging from turning around news-led speech content to researching, packaging and scripting one-hour specials single-handedly, and am well-versed in online content generation too (I can even code websites from scratch, having put together the site you're looking at now.)
