I have been writing and talking about sport for more than a decade.

I first wrote football reports for my local newspaper, the Eastbourne Herald, in 1999, aged 14. A few years later, after a brief period reading the sports news on Eastbourne's local commercial station, Sovereign Radio (now Sovereign FM), I began reporting and commentating on non-league matches for BBC Southern Counties Radio.

In 2007, I graduated with a first-class degree in journalism from the University College for the Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey. During my degree, I spent two weeks' work experience at both London Sport magazine (which no longer exists) and on The Independent's sports desk, while continuing to freelance for BBC local radio.

I then joined the Eastbourne Herald full-time as a general news reporter, although as the recession started to bite I also subbed news and sports pages and covered for the sports editor. I left the Herald in July 2010 to concentrate on my freelance career.

My commentary work since 2010 has included:
– Live Europa League matches for Uefa.com
–Voicing Premier League highlights for the ESPN Goals mobile app
– Football League matches for clubs' official websites,
– Cardiff City home matches for the club's overseas TV feed
– Live ATP & WTA Tour tennis for various betting websites
– Voicing tennis highlights packages for the WTA Tour

I also write for the West London Sport website, covering matches at Chelsea, Fulham, QPR and Brentford.

My previous work has included acting as content consultant for the Clever Clogs Olympics series of children's books and publicity officer for Conference side Eastbourne Borough - a role previously held by former Chelsea chief executive Colin Hutchinson...

Every May, I also present shows on a community rock music radio station, Hastings Rock, which is on air for 28 days each year and raises cash for charity.
