I am a search and trends reporter for the Yorkshire Post with a view to find the most engaging, trending stories. Topics include (but are not limited to): Heritage, events, TV/celebrity, property, business, human interest, transport and weather.
I have been working in journalism since 2016 after studying my postgraduate degree at the University of Sheffield; I was a reporter for an insurance/finance magazine in London before moving to Birmingham in 2017, where I worked as a features reporter for a press agency and was later promoted to assistant features editor. For a year in 2020 I worked freelance for various local online news websites and national titles including OK! Magazine and in July 2021 I started my job here at the Yorkshire Post.
I’ve lived and worked in various cities across the country, but to me, nowhere is comparable to Yorkshire. My passion and love for the region is my main drive to help find the stories that matter most to you. The digitalisation of journalism really expands the boundaries for finding and sharing stories - this really helps to raise the region’s profile further afield. It has also given me endless opportunities when it comes to subjects I cover.
Outside of work, I enjoy socialising with family and friends, since the pandemic I’ve dabbled in baking and discovered my love for it - though I won’t be going on the Bake Off anytime soon, listening to music (the 80s-00s eras), swimming and watching TV.
Your suggestions for stories and topics you would like me to cover are always welcome, so please feel free to get in touch with me if you have a story you’d like me to share.
