Craig Taylor, Brooke Weston's new audio-visual technician has completed a degree in media production and is looking forward to working with staff and students here.
He studied all aspects of media production during his degree at De Montfort University, but has a special aptitude for audio and radio, having volunteered at Leicester's award-winning hospital broadcaster, Radio Fox, as well as completing work experience at Heart FM, BBC Radio Northampton and Demon FM, a student radio station.
Craig started editing videos at 15 with a PC and enjoyed it so much he studied media at A Level then decided on it as a career. He said: 'My university course was really wide ranging, covering aspects including TV, audio, video, radio, website design and animation. I'm fortunate as I am one of only a handful of people who left the course to have found a job in their chosen profession.'
Craig has been working alongside Mr Peter Jackson, who has been at Brooke Weston for nearly 16 years, but he is likely to spend his time helping media students with their video editing in the Creative Arts and Media block.
He said: I really enjoy it here, everyone's very focussed on what they are doing and I'm impressed with the technology. I'm hoping this job will allow me to use and broaden the skills that I've got.'
