I'm a charismatic, confident individual who loves working with people; whether I am organising an event, promoting a brand or behind a microphone, I am happiest when I am chatting and making people smile. You can count on me to fill the workplace with positive energy and to inspire others to do the same. I love working in the creative industry as nothing beats creating something; be it an interview, event or a news piece. I am keen to branch out and explore other platforms for content to live on, while still delivering a smile to an audience.

Live Events Presenter

Kidney Wales
I have hosted Gala Dinners, Dodgeball matches, Awards Evenings, hosted a stage at the Cardiff 10km for them and even helped out with hospital visits with the charity. I have formed friendships with both the volunteers and the patients and take pride with my work with such a fantastic charity.  I even ran a 10km on behalf of the charity.


I have hosted four events a year for the race organisers; going through safety briefings, taking stage photos and interviewing members of the crowd for the 10k obstacle course. It's truly an honour to be answered back time and time again. 

Cancer Research UK

I have worked for the charity presenting at a number of Race For Life events as well as promoting the events at local launch's. I am also looking forward to presenting their Pretty Muddy events this summer.


Birmingham City Council

I presented at The St George's Day Celebrations in Victoria Square where I introduced the music acts on stage and informed the audience about the ongoing events. 



I hosted The Dunelm Duvet Challenge in The Bullring, which was a live game show competition where I got the general public to get involved and get in with the chance to win a home makeover. 



Worked at The Student Lock-In at Westfield's Merry Hill Shopping Centre and presented on stage, introducing acts and informing the shoppers of the exclusive deals and discounts that evening.


Capital FM

I presented at the Odeon Cinema for a Ticket Giveaway where I hosted a short quiz for a ticket giveaway where different screenings were given the chance to win tickets to Fusion Festival.


One Voice Media
I hosted  The Face of Princesshay, announcing the winners and described the clothes on the cat walk.
