Hi, I'm a 21 year old student from Chepstow, South Wales, studying Media and Journalism at UWE.

The course covers content creation for all areas of the media: TV, web, print and social media.

I have a lot of things I like to do in my spare time, and it all seems to revolve around pop-culture. I enjoy watching movies, playing video games, listening to music, playing music, reading, cooking, and I also enjoy occasionally creating YouTube videos, and streaming on Twitch.

Video and sound editing (I use Adobe Premiere and Adobe Audition),
Personal skills,
Time management,
Ability to improvise,
Eager to learn.
