Programme Leader Social Media Management, Video Journalism Lecturer (Sabbatical)
I am an award-winning online video journalist and content creator. I've produced videos for Sky, the Guardian, the Telegraph, Daily Mail and Good Morning Britain. I also spent two years working on Sky's regional video news project Sky Tyne and Wear.
I am interested in digital storytelling, social media content creation, verification and analytics and online community management.
Teaching and supervision
I am Programme Leader for BA (Hons) Social Media Management – a degree I helped to launch focusing on creating and sharing content and analysing and engaging online communities. I also teach video journalism across undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.
I introduced video journalism teaching to the journalism suite of courses, and started a live radio and TV news programme with students called Word on Wearside.
