I’m a Mancunian lass with an interest in all things video and photography. I have previously worked in TV but moved into work in Social Media and Community Development in 2009. I got involved with Community Reporting through volunteering with People’s Voice Media which led to freelancing as a Community Reporter at conferences and also delivering Community Reporter training. My last role there as a Community Reporter Trainer involved not only Community Reporter training but Project Management and co-ordination of Community Engagement activities – which was something of a step up for me. I’ve worked with some diverse groups and it certainly got me out and about. I’ve been working in Manchester, Salford, Liverpool, Preston, Rotherham, Blackburn and Hartlepool. In May 2011 I headed off to Salamanca in Spain to support Teresa Wilson on the ISABEL project training trainers to train Community Reporters in Europe. I’ve always hoped to travel abroad with my job, and I finally got to do it! Currently I am looking for projects to work on or an interesting full time job involving media. I’ve set up this blog to kind of collate all these activities and map my journey .
