Hi, I'm Thomas.

I'm a journalist, presenter and digital strategist with a variety of skills and experience across multiple platforms. You can read my Blog by clicking the link below, scroll through my experience and testimonials and contact me using the panel at the bottom of the page.

My Experience

I undertook three stints of Work Experience at Yahoo! News and Sport, contributing multiple articles, as well as assisting on Yahoo Sports' flagship "The Football Show". In addition, I was responsible for the Yahoo! News and Yahoo! Sport Twitter accounts, helping maintain a constant flow of content output in association with other journalists.

In this time, my articles regularly appeared on the Yahoo! homepage. From this experience, I developed further my writing and editorial skills.

In August 2019 I spent a week of Work Experience at the Goat Agency in central London. During this time, I slotted into a live campaigns team - managing social media campaigns worth up to £50,000 for some of the world's biggest brands, such as Hussle and Western Union. I also participated in training schemes, contributing to a group session on identifying 'influencer fraud' through the use of pod groups.

In just one week, I picked up the skills required for influencer marketing and closed deals with some of the UK's largest influencers, as well as producing over 150 outreach leads.

 "It was a pleasure working with you over the last week and you really surprised me at just how quickly you picked everything up" - Tim Hepper, Goat Agency Campaign Manager

In June 2017 I completed a week of work experience at HuffPost UK, which had (at the time) a growing readership of 10.7m a month. During my time at HuffPost, I helped research and find data and photos for articles.

 

I was also heavily involved in a day of producing Build LDN, a web-based interview series that has racked up hundreds of thousands of online views. Whilst working on producing the show I was responsible for setting up the green room and also asked a question live on stream.

In June 2020 I became a feature contributor at ShoutOut UK and write a weekly 'Notepad' feature.

During the 2019 Election I arranged, developed, and presented the Twynham Debate, an hour-long debate held at Twynham School just one week before the General Election. During this time, I led a team of ten in successfully delivering the debate. This included research, marketing, liasing with candidates, overseeing cameras and recording equipment whilst also ensuring that the event ran to time. With over 500 attendees, the event was a resounding success, motivating students to get involved and use both their vote and voice.
