Contractor working in the broadcast industry, expertise in integration testing, specifically Conditional Access and Digital Rights Management.

In 2016 I published my doctoral thesis on online video annotation of broadcast footage and non-linear content browsing, sponsored by Sony Broadcast Professional Research Labs. I have also been an author on 3 Computer Vision research papers, including a Google prize-winner at CVMP 2015, as part of my 3-year MPhil at the University of Surrey in Guildford.

I graduated from the University of Surrey in 2012 with a 1st in Electronics and Computer Engineering BEng, including awards for best achievement, best industrial placement and best undergraduate project. I spent my placement year working for Sony Professional Services as a Broadcast Engineer, where I worked for a short period after graduation.

In my spare time design and maintain websites for small business and local charities. I am always interested to talk about new web design, photo or video production opportunities.

I have previously been Video Equipment Officer for Surrey Stage Crew and Technical Producer for the Student Television Station during the year it won the Special Interest Society of the Year award. In 2013-14 I was President of the Postgraduate Society, winning awards for Best Student Run Service, Most Improved and Developed Society, and Society of the Year. More recently I was inaugural President and then Treasurer of the University's Garden Society 2014-16.

I have a passion for media production, photography, technology, programming, climbing, roller derby, trains, boats, vegetarian food, ukuleles and travelling.
