What do you do at the Museum?
I'm a Media Technician supporting Nature Live and other learning programmes.
What’s the best bit about your job?
I’m lucky, my job is pretty diverse. One minute I’m fixing the interactive exhibitions in the Museum’s galleries and the next I’m doing a Nature Live with video-links to NASA. I’m constantly researching all the coolest gadgets and trying to integrate them into our live events. I get to work with computers, cameras, video editing, special effects and sound.
What are you most excited about seeing on the trip?
Amazing HD footage of marine life - techno geek I know! But my favourite thing about this trip specifically is being able to reach out to Museum visitors and helping them engage with the science that goes on here.
Is anything worrying you about the trip?
I’m worried about getting sand in the technical equipment. Oh and sun burn.
