What was your first job as a journalist?

It was on the Welsh youth news show, Ffeil. Tackling news for a young audience is challenging but so rewarding. I got to jet-wash a goat too.

How is social media changing news?

It's making news and weather far more accessible. Most of what I do is for social media and I love it... it means you can always connect.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

April O'Neil from the popular Turtles franchise. She was spectacular yet impractical, that yellow jumpsuit would have been stinking!
