Journalism

As a journalist, I am constantly looking to get my work published on a variety of different platforms whether that would be online or print media. Over the last four years, my work has been published for a number of publications, both national and international.

Working closely with the publications I have worked with, they have provided me with various challenges in terms of written and presentational styles. This has helped me ground myself in the work that I currently produce as a professional journalist.

I am always willing to write and produce content in my areas of interest (motor racing, politics, hyperlocal news, sport, data), as well as branching myself outside of my specialist journalism areas. Any content I produce will fit into the style the client sets for me to achieve and produce within a set time frame.

Here’s a few links of my work being published on different digital newspaper/magazine websites which you can check out here:

New Media

Alongside specialising in journalism on my degree, I have also done a lot of work based around web and new media. What this entails is making websites and all sorts of interesting products using web languages (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) to generate the product in an IDE such as CodePen.

Whilst most of my new media work complements the journalism work, this has given me an extra set of skills to work with, particularly with data journalism as I can code my data visualisations using JavaScript languages such as jQuery and Angular.JS.

Most of my work in my three years of doing New Media has been done in CodePen for my second and third year at Birmingham City University. Here’s my third year project that I have done for one of my final modules on my degree, which also has an article if you click on the picture below.

Data Journalism and Tableau

Over the past couple of years, I have been interested in using data journalism tools such as Tableau, R and SQL to create data visualisations and dashboards that make an impact and help make sense of the stories I am telling through data.

You can view my Tableau Public profile, and feel free to have a look at some of the dashboards I have created below.

Video

Whilst a majority of my content is visual through my data visualisations I generate in Tableau and R, as well as pictures being captured off my iPhone, I am also prominent with using video to add depth to my work.

Most recently, I have been doing some YouTube videos to do with Tableau Tips such as diverging bar charts and gantt charts. That’s not all, I also capture video to give my stories a “multimedia” feel to it whether that is a protest or a local event taking place in the UK, I will be there with my iPhone to capture the moment as of when it happens.

Here’s some of my video portfolio below:
