Early Career and Technology
Maddie started her career in technology presenting Lady Geek TV, a comedy technology web series for Nokia and Kaspersky. From here she was approached by O2 to host O2 Guru TV and went on to create the online content for Channel 4’s TV Series, Home of the Future. Now, Maddie regularly works with various technology giants, including Dixons Carphone, Renault, Samsung and Intel. Most recently, she’s been reviewing tech and indulging her adventurous streak for Sony Xperia, putting smartphones to the test from hot air balloons, and international firework competitions!
Presenting online video lead to opportunities in radio and television and in 2014 Maddie was invited to join the BBC 5 Live “Saturday Edition” team as their resident technology expert. She now pops up a frequent guest on BBC 5 Live’s “Big Share” to discuss viral internet stories and is often asked to share her words of wisdom on the latest tech news on both the radio and the likes of BBC Breakfast and Good Morning Britain.
YouTube and Earth Unplugged
However, when she isn’t working on her own YouTube channel or reviewing the latest tech, Maddie’s love of nature lead to her presenting Earth Unplugged, a natural sciences YouTube channel produced by BBC Digital Studios. Here, Maddie investigates the conundrums and quirks of our amazing planet and in doing so has helped hatch alligators, been covered in leeches and even swam with prehistoric fish! Maddie has presented on the channel since it first started in 2012, it now has over 300,000 subscribers and even received a Panda award from Wildscreen in 2014 for Best New Media. These successes grabbed the attention of BBC America, who took some of her highlights from the channel and turned them into a one-off special television programme titled, It’s a Mad Mad Maddie World!
2016 and Do You Know?
In 2016, Maddie will be pursuing further TV projects, presenting Do You Know? for Cbeebies, a 25×15 commission which sees her explore the workings of everyday objects by looking at how they are made or how they work, backed up by graphics and special camera technology!
