For the past year Tom has been the Station Manager of Forge TV, and has played a key role in increasing both the quality of Forge’s output, and also the viewership it receives for each of its uploads. As Station Manager, Tom regularly meets with SU staff and has become a well known name on campus. His strong links to Students’ Union departments such as Marketing, Technical Services and the Events Coordinators gives him the edge as the head of the Forge TV host team.
Tom’s biggest passion is student media. Having been a member of the Forge TV committee for 3 years, he’s played a huge part in the growth of the station. Despite having many contact hours for his Mathematics degree, Tom uses his spare time planning shoots and editing videos.
In 2015, Tom worked as one of the producers for Freshers TV when Forge were hosts. For this role Tom helped come up with the plan for the full stream, including live link ups to each of the stations. Tom was in close contact with many stations across the country and effective communication was kept throughout the process.
At the end of this academic year, Tom will be stepping down from his duties of Station Manager and instead would be focusing his attention on the NaSTA conference. He’ll be utilizing all of the contacts and skills he’s picked up during the past year to create a successful NaSTA Conference.
