TV & RADIO

My ambition is to be a TV Presenter. I consider myself fortunate to have Asperger’s because I believe it is the reason why I am so quirky, creative and different and I think it is these qualities that will enable me to break into the TV world.
The Undateables
On Wednesday 13th June 2019 I appeared on Series 10 of "The Undateables" on Channel 4.

Solihull Radio Children's Show
On Sunday 11th March 2018 I launched my very own Children’s Show on Solihull Radio that will air every Sunday from 8-10am. The shows will be jam packed full of children’s songs and events, interviews and episodes of old children's TV shows. Also, “Rainbow Man”, my new children's stories will be visiting a different local attraction each week.

My Showreel
I filmed my audition in my Grandad's garden and could not believe my ears when I got a call from a reporter from The Times newspaper! I then appeared in The Times, Birmingham Mail, Solihull News, Mail Online and on BBC WM.

Audition for the Top Gear​ Co-presenters job
BT Sport 
In 2017 I spent a week down in London at the BT Sport Studios. I looked after the Guests on a Rugby Tonight programme, was a runner during a Bundesliga football match and helped to set up the “Clare Balding Show”. I also got to meet some of the Rugby Presenters including Sarra Elgan and was also a stand in during the Clare Balding rehearsals and had to play the part of England footballer, Karen Carney.
CBBC Awesome Authors live in Birmingham
"Awesome Authors" was an event held on the 16th & 17th July 2016 in Birmingham where I got to watch Blue Peter being Broadcast live as well as meeting some of the presenters including Barny Harwood and Radzi chinyanganya. I also met Sam and Mark, Abe Jarman, Ben Shires and Dan Freedman. Ben Shires from "Match of the Day Kickabout" even invited me on to the stage

"Rainbow Man" children's show
Rainbow Man is a fun and colourful children's television show that is aimed at under-fives to educate and encourage them to learn. Rainbow Man is supported by a fun and quirky narrator as well as memorable friends such as "Grumpy Doug" and "Giddy Gordon". Some of the values that will be portrayed include ‘Empathy’, ‘Self-esteem’ and ‘Creativity’. During each show, Rainbow Man will visit a different location and will educate children on the world around them. Overall the show will be ‘amusing’, ‘educational’ and ‘visually exciting’. 

 

I have created numerous documents on the show including presentations, scripts, style guides and videos. Rainbow Man was reviewed by the Cbeebies commissioning team in 2016 and I now read my Rainbow Man stories on my children's radio show that airs every Sunday morning from 8-10am on Solihull Radio.
