I am a multi-media Assistant Producer & Reporter based in Glasgow, Scotland & Belfast, Northern Ireland.
I have experience working with BBC Radio Ulster, BBC Radio Foyle, goQRadio, BBC NI Learning & Talent Development, and undertaken placements with Crawford McCann Ltd, BBC Rewind and Clyde News (Bauer Media).
I graduated from Queen's University Belfast with a First Class Honours BA Broadcast Production degree in June 2020.
Currently, I am the Marketing & Communications Officer (2020/21) for the Student Radio Association (UK) and Chair of RTS Futures (NI).
In August 2019, I worked on BBC Arts NI's documentary about the Stendhal Festival, this was my first TV credit. The programme was broadcast on BBC One NI.
I began freelancing with QRadio in October 2019 as a Technical Operative and then began producing video content for the QRadio social media platforms.
I was delighted to join the BBC NI Learning & Talent Development team in January 2020 to work on an Under 25s Season for the BBC Radio Ulster schedule. Where I worked closely with current production teams to help the programmes engage with "youth issues", younger voices and a younger audience. Following this I then began working on the Sunday with Dearbhail programme (which has since become Sunday with Steven Rainey) as an Assistant Producer.
Throughout my time at Queen's University I was heavily involved with student radio. From June 2018 - June 2019, I held the position of Station Manager of Queen's Radio.
