My name’s Soph and I’m currently studying the Interactive Journalism MA at City University and working multiple freelance jobs in London.
But that’s boring, what about you? I hear you say. Well, I’m in my mid-twenties, I’ve lived in London all my life, and I co-habit with a puppy and a cat who don’t particularly get on. Outside of work and university and other things that don’t sound interesting or fun, I love travelling.
I recently camped across America for about four weeks, starting in San Francisco and ending in New York. On my journey I survived bears, black widow spiders, tarantulas, coyotes, bobcats and mosquitoes. You can bet I was pretty happy to be in a bed at the end of it! I also spent some time camping in South America, where I went piranha fishing in the Pantanal (amongst other things) – and I actually caught one!
I’m interested in “making news work”, I really enjoy data journalism and social media within a journalistic context, and I love great photography – an happy surprise that came about as a result of spending two years working with pictures on a digital desk.
Naturally, I’m on Twitter, so pop over and say hi.
