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.

Interviews

I am an experienced political journalist used to speaking to people at every level in politics, from voters to MPs to the Prime Minister.

In this one-to-one interview with Labour leader Ed Miliband he attacked local government funding cuts, pledged Labour would tackle low wages and talked about his plans for the TV election debates.

I used part of the interview as a standalone story about Mr Miliband's kitchen after he spoke about that. His kitchen was a big issue at the time!

In this interview with David Cameron, conducted as part of a round-table with other regional journalists, the Conservative leader defended council cuts, said he was committed to helping the poor and said a Conservative government would make regional economic growth a priority.

I used comments Mr Cameron made about plans to consult MPs before forming any future Coalition to create a second story.
