I am an experienced online journalist and political editor working for Trinity Mirror papers in the West Midlands and the North East, based in the Parliamentary Press Gallery at Westminster.

I understand how government, Parliament and political parties work. I am equally at home digging out stories from data, social media or interviews as I am covering major set-piece events or explaining how things work to readers.

I produce content which is shareable and promote my work on social media.

My experience with content management systems and knowledge of HTML allows me to include charts, embedded content from third parties and formatting in my work, to create content which encourages interaction and keeps readers on the page.

Quirky stories

This story about UKIP's bizarre claim that cycle lanes discriminate against old people because cyclists tend to be young did well.

 

Other examples include the candidate who claimed to be part of the local community on a giant poster - but spelt community wrong.

The retiring MP who told the House of Commons his constituents were rude - and the pay was too low.

And a story about Labour leader Ed Miliband saying James Bond should be played by a female actress also did well. He made the comments in a radio interview and we got hits from it by getting it online quickly. For this story I identified actresses who could play the part, sourced some photos, added a poll asking readers who they felt should play Bond and promoted it on social media.
