After getting a Degree in Hospitality Management, I worked in the hotel and tourism industry. I then moved into television and video production, as a multi-skilled video journalist. I worked on a number of programmes including a BAFTA-nominated BBC series, BBC Sports bulletins, BBC Learning and BBC Outreach projects. I have also done video marketing for a number of businesses and organisations. In recent years I have specialised in tourism marketing and have shot promotional videos at many of the world's leading tourism destinations. I have a great deal of experience in using light-weight cameras and smartphones. I have delivered training across Europe on filming and editing on iPhones and iPads. I split my time between Europe and Latin America.
