PREVIOUS EMPLOYMENT
Editor | Jul 2011 - May 2018 | Vital Liverpool
I combined my love of sport and writing by editing Vital Liverpool - part of the popular independent football fans network Vital Football. On average I penned around 35 articles per month, including news stories, gossip pieces, live blogs, match previews and match reports. Additionally my writing has been published in a number of magazines and fanzines over the years including, most recently, Football 2019 by World Football. Sadly other commitments have forced me to scale back my sports journalism aspirations for the time being.

Modules included media theory, advanced authoring (CD-ROM/DVD), web programming (HTML, CSS, PHP etc) and media enterprise and management. The course was a mixture of practical, analytical and theoretical and gave me the ability to work with different and diverse media forms whilst better understanding the implications of the work produced.
