intermittent since 2001

I worked at Television Centre. It was the best place ever!

I’ve knocked around the BBC the best part of my life due to the fact that my dad worked there for ever. When I went to study photography at Sandwell College in Wednesbury/West Bromwich we were required to organise work experience for both years of the course. The first year I did a week with the…
