  • About Our Member

  • Having completed a Court Reporting 225 wpm evening programme in New York in 1993, in 2000, I began working for the BBC on their Broadcast Stenography Training Programme.
    At the BBC and later Red Bee Media and Ericsson, I worked across all channels at BBC, Sky News, Sky Sports, Channel 4, Channel 5 and BT Sport. I captioned all genres of live output including news, documentary, sports, and entertainment.

    I now enjoy providing verbatim real-time speech to text communication support one-to-one, onsite or remotely for clients and for larger audiences in lectures, conferences, galleries, and for theatre and the arts.
    In 2019 I completed Signature’s Level 1 Deaf Awareness and am registered
    with National Registers for Communication Professionals (NRCPD).
