I’m Elle, a television presenter and journalist based in London and Brighton.
A politics graduate, I worked on Boris Johnson’s mayoral campaign and at Conservative Party HQ, before moving into media after I was chosen for the BBC’s Gareth Butler political journalism post. After specialist training for online, radio and television, I became a full time multimedia broadcast journalist; writing, filming and producing news reports and features.
I then left to go freelance, and have since worked for media organisations including Channel 4, ITN and The Times. In addition to news reporting, my presenting experience includes talking about social media on BBC Breakfast, red carpet reporting for the Vue Film Show and beating Stephen Fry at the world's largest computer game for Channel 4!
An avid gig-goer, one of my biggest passions is music. I've appeared on BBC Breakfast, Sky News, BBC 6 Music and Radio 1 to talk about it, and have recently taken over as the presenter and producer of new music progamme Balcony TV in Brighton.
Away from journalism, I'm a performance poet, regularly performing in London and Brighton. My work is heavily influenced by slam, hip-hop and beat poetry, as well as people like The Last Poets, Gil Scott-Heron and Maya Angelou.
