I'm a UK-based web developer and Wikinews reporter, amongst other things.
I'm always on the lookout for a story, or something I can help with, be it original reporting, photography, interviews or synthesis articles. I'm usually idling in the IRC channel and always up for helping out with anything technical or journalistic. I also enjoy tidying articles in terms of written prose and grammar, so do feel free to throw messy articles my way if something needs a cleanup.
Below is a list of articles I have contributed to or performed reporting for.
- Protesters arrested at anti-Scientology event in Atlanta - Interview, initial authorship
- Scientology protest group celebrates founder's birthday worldwide - London coverage - Interviews, writeup, photos
Relevant Expertise and Skills
I am able to perform video and audio mastering and editing, video compilation, audio report creation, and other tasks related to the audiovisual aspects of reporting.
I also have over 5 years of experience in web application development and design, and website graphical interface design. In my spare time I help operate the technical side of a youth music project in Oxfordshire, and design and run both sound and lighting for various theatrical shows at local theatres.
