My key qualities and achievements include: - Multilingual with a fluent and professional command of English, German and a working knowledge of Russian, French and Spanish. - Extensive and comprehensive experience across a wide-ranging media spectrum including television, radio, print, social, electronic and digital. - Exceptional professional versatility with ample experience in finance, agricultural market research, sports betting, translation and football journalism as a writer, commentator and analyst. I hold qualifications in Journalism from Cornwall College under the National Council for Training of Journalists (NCTJ) scheme and Russian Studies from the Royal Air Force Language School.
