Senior Operational Meteorologist working for the Met Office at the BBC Weather Centre, located in New Broadcasting House in central London.
I led a team of broadcast meteorologists who worked with me at the Weather Centre. I contributed to the production of content across television, radio and online, providing expert guidance on weather events across the world.
I provided briefings to weather presenters working across the UK for BBC Nations and Regions, ensuring a consistent message is maintained across BBC Weather output.
The excellent training I continued to receive in meteorology and broadcasting, together with my personal interest in the science of weather and climate, allowed me to appear as an expert on a range of BBC services, including several of their national radio stations and BBC World for the Outside Source news programme.
I regularly broadcast on BBC local radio, and have been an annual guest on the Vic Morgan show on BBC Radio in the Southwest since 2013. I occasioanlly presented the weather forecast for BBC Nations and Regions, and I was interviewed about my role by BBC Four's Timeshift programme for the episode 'Hurricanes and Heatwaves: The Highs and Lows of British Weather'.
The skills and knowledge I gained in the day-to-day operational functions of the Weather Centre allowed me to progress into the role of Operations Manager, which I carried out alongside my forecasting duties.
