Currently a financial journalist for the B2B FundMap, covering the U.S charity and foundation sector. My bylines can be found in a diverse number of publications, including Sky News, the Manchester Evening News, Backbench and The Cardiffian. I am NCTJ qualified, including full training in data journalism, videojournalism, photojournalism and media law. I was also one of only two recipients of the Thomas Read Bursary in 2017, reflecting my passion and commitment to the journalism industry.
