Been asked to write my profile on the corporate website. Here’s the first draft:
Brief job description
Reviewing and reporting on the latest digital cameras and camcorders, presenting consumers with advice and news that is both informed and accessible
Areas of expertise
Reporting on the latest news with the speed and context that only online can provide, supported by in-depth, authoritative product reviewing, and assured video presenting. Also jokes about ninjas.
One person I’d love to interview is…
In 10 words
A little bit country, a little bit rock’n’roll. Sausage dog.
Most interesting place visited on business
Either the geek paradise that is the Akihabara district of Tokyo, or the foothills of the Atlas Mountains on a warm Moroccan night.
You’ll believe a man can fly
More detailed bio that will go into a PDF for people to download
Rich Trenholm is the Digital Camera and Camcorder Reviewer for CNET UK. He divides his time between authoritative, accessible product reviews and tenuous jokes about ‘80s cartoons in the daily Crave gadget blog.
Rich began his journalistic career at university, writing about music and film before becoming Students’ Union Communications Officer. He has also worked at scientific journals covering genetics and microbiology, despite barely being able to tie his own shoes.
A former indie-kid turned-skatepunk, Rich is pleased he is finally old enough to carry off and afford a decent rockabilly haircut.
Taking it seriously enough..?
