Creative Writer at Signal 107 • YouTube Content Creator • Cinematographer

  • Location: Wolverhampton
  • Career stage: Early

I've been uploading and editing a range of content onto my YouTube channel for just under 5 years, have a strong knowledge of the community on global and local scales. I know how audience interaction both helps and hinders content creators and it hinges on how they interact and collaborate with other content creators and their viewers. Creating my videos has offered me the chance to experience editing with a variety of software to different types of deadlines. I also gained valuable networking and team work skills while actively participating in content creation and its various aspects on YouTube.

I spent half a year running Static 88.1 as part of my University major with my classmates, learning how the station broadcasted, how to deal with advertising clients, writing, producing and editing advertisments and audio segments for broadcast to a potential audience of 25,000 people. And at 95bFM I worked editing down segments of aired broadcasts to be uploaded online and replayed, and hosted a live two hour show for around 9 months with features and a playlist suitable for the station and my show style.

And now I am the writer at Signal 107, writing a variety of ads for our amazing clients that really stand out on air! It's really helped me with deadline management and pushing myself as a creative and enhancing my passion for radio
