Social Media Manager | Journalist | Videographer

Welcome to my collection of everything I have done, professionally and vocationally, throughout my degree, career and travels!


Talie Colbourne

I’m a 22 year-old, originally from Birmingham but currently living in Lincoln. Professionally, I have a first-class degree in Journalism from the university of Lincoln and am currently working as the Social Media & Blogging Intern for the University of Lincoln Student Life. In my spare time, I enjoy travelling the world (with as many trips to Disney Parks as possible), baking and reading.

What do you want to see?


When I was younger, I was always writing and blogging was my first way of dipping my toes into the world of storytelling. I don’t do it as much anymore, but it still has a very special place in my heart.


Stemming from a realisation that I really love filming and being behind the camera, I have had the opportunity to be a videographer on multiple occasions, most notably at an American summer camp.


My most recent love is vlogging, whether I’m in a Disney park or just on a day out, I’ve really enjoyed experimenting with an in the moment style of storytelling and allowing my creativity to unfold.


Photography is now more of a hobby for me, since studying it at A Level and during my degree, but I feel it has been an integral basis to my understanding of composition, cameras and creativity.


I graduated with a first class degree in Journalism, studying Print, Multiplatform and theory before specialising in Television News Production, Online and Social Media in my final year.


While I trained as a journalist, I am currently working as a Social Media Manager, enjoy design in my spare time and would absolutely love to have a future in any kind of communications.
