About

My film writing and presenting work began in November 2015 with the Super Bailey Bros review podcast. Initially just a hobby, chart positions, download numbers and listener responses grew fast and wide, reaching highs of #1 in iTunes’ New & Noteworthy category, and #20 in their UK TV & Film charts. Today, the show is released weekly to a loyal audience around the world.

Radio & BBC

BBC Radio Oxford were impressed with my work on the podcast, and invited me to contribute regular film reviews and comment for live radio – this became a weekly position when I replaced James Luxford as Thursday evening Drivetime critic on Howard Bentham’s programme. I have also featured on BBC Radio Berkshire for Tony Blackburn, Bill Buckley & Sarah Walker, and BBC Local for Georgie Spanswick.

I wrote weekly half-page reviews for The Oxford Paper & Oxfordshire Guardian between November 2016 & August 2017.

Other

The Film Studies department at Oxford Brookes University invited me to contribute to a 2-hour lecture on podcasting and working within the film journalism industry. Student response was very positive, and discussions are underway for further collaboration.

Background

I have a 7-year background in Marketing & PR, having worked as copywriter, publicity manager, marketing strategist and consultant, and an Honours degree in English Studies from Oxford Brookes University. Connect with me on LinkedIn to see a more detailed history of my work and experience.
