I am a current final year student of Journalism and Public Relations at the University of West of England with an immense interest in the video games industry. Currently, I am involved in video games journalism as the lead content creator for Indie-Love.com, and as an interviewer for indie games developers for a podcast that I started in July, 2014, named Indie Investigations with a listenership of upwards of 500 weekly. I have also been hosting and producing my own video games news podcast since August, 2011; as well as a segment on news for the Frogpants Studios podcast, Current Geek, a podcast with upwards of 50,000 listeners.
My skills as a professional include my ability to engage in a conversation on a professional level, to gather information and distill it into an easy to digest manner, and to handle internal disputes in a calm manner. Good examples of this can be seen in the podcasts that I produce. In my interview-centric podcast, Indie Investigations, I sit and discuss the industry with indie games developers. This involves asking questions about the development process, crowdfunding, and the problems that come with such processes. Through this, I have been able to develop my skills as an interviewer, as well as provides me a unique opportunity to learn about the challenges of the industry, albeit in a second-hand manner.
As a citizen of the world, I have a wide range of experience interacting with different cultures and walks of life. For the majority of elementary school and the whole of my teenage years, I lived in South-East Asia. As a British citizen, this opened my eyes to different ways of life and allowed me to appreciate what makes the world a unique place. This provided me the opportunity to grow as an individual and to learn to understand people in a much more unique way than I would have been able to otherwise.
Managing a website (and its staff) has also provided me with its own unique challenges. This comes from hiring people and evaluating their skills, as well as being skilled with managing different personalities, and, sadly if need be, being able to discontinue their employment. On top of this, due to the unique nature of Indie-Love.com, I have experience working out differences of opinion with my colleagues in a professional and smooth manner, leading to a stronger team in the end.
