Hello! I’m Adam Westbrook.
I’m a multimedia producer, film maker and lecturer based in London, UK.
In 2009 I quit my newsroom job to go freelance and explore all the exciting new opportunities opening up in the digital world. Since then I have become a lecturer at Kingston University’s journalism department, published three ebooks on journalism, spoken at dozens of conferences across Europe and started my own production business.
To find out more about my work head over to my portfolio website, right here.
2012 is a year of both creating and learning for me. I’m editing a collaborative ebook on digital storytelling (published in April 2012) which will raise money for the charity Kiva. I’m working on bigger multimedia projects, continuing my teaching and research and teaching myself web design.
