I’m James, and I currently work for Bloomberg, producing and coordinating live video coverage of breaking and potentially market-moving news. I work on the TV news desk, organise camera crews to cover events, and collaborate with stakeholders across the newsroom and beyond to provide a wide, comprehensive and as high a quality of coverage as possible.
Over the last year I’ve specialised in economic and central bank coverage, and I’ve coordinated live video of key market moving events, including speeches by ECB President Draghi, BOE Governor Carney and Fed Chair Yellen.
As a multi-skilled journalist I have worked across web and multimedia platforms, produced video reports and interviews, reported for audiences across the world. I have a clear, concise and authoritative style, and have the ability to distill and explain information in clear and straightforward ways. I have experience targeting my content to a specialised audience, and a good understanding of what content works best on a variety of different platforms.
I also have reporting experience, a good eye for a story, and a knack for finding the best possible angle. I have covered UK economic and political stories for international TV and radio, and have interviewed senior political figures, including Theresa May. Having studied politics, economics and journalism, I have a very detailed understanding of UK and EU politics, and strong economic and business knowledge.
