Here we are again in another edition of our ‘Meet the Team’ series, and this week our focus is on the wonderful Diana! Diana works within the operational team for our events, taking part in live, on location work as well as remote and hybrid jobs! We spoke to Diana about her time at Tell and we’re thrilled to share a little bit about her and her Tell journey with you!

Tell us a bit about your journey into the technical production industry. How did you get to where you are now?

“Ever since I was young, I was always curious about content creation, especially in the context of television. Although I had to study multiple disciplines throughout college, this interest persisted and has only grown with the evolution of the industry, which ultimately led to my decision to study Digital Television Production at Ravensbourne University London. This experience was a pleasant one, being a great opportunity to pursue a dream of mine, which also amplified this initial curiosity and mixed it with a desire to leave my own mark in the industry.”

What is it that you do with/for Tell and what is your favourite part of the job?

“I have the pleasure of operating for events as part of the services we provide at Tell, whether on location, remote or even hybrid, as well as the handling of technical equipment, providing a duality to the job which keeps me engaged and productive. As of now, I am expanding my set of abilities everyday, in a continuous mission to deliver the best quality possible to our clients, no matter the challenges! I am able to refine my technique with each project and the process itself is highly rewarding and motivating, which provides me with a great deal of satisfaction in my work.”

What personal interests/passions do you have and do they ever intersect with the work you do with Tell?

“Our work covers a variety of content types here at Tell so we get to be present in various types of activities. Personally, some of my interests are watching sports, seeing musicians and artists perform on stage, motorsports, and consuming social media, specifically Instagram and TikTok. For example, a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to operate the replays for the streams at a diving competition, which was a really fun experience. I was immersed in what was going on around me, due to my interest in the activity, and mixing this with my professional passion was a unique way of enjoying the event.”

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received in life?
“There are years which ask questions and years which answer them” - Mantra from a good friend of mine.

What mythical creature do you wish existed IRL?
“Phoenix Bird, specifically from the Harry Potter series. Need I say more?”

What celebrity lookalike do you get compared to?
“I’ve been told I resemble Selena Gomez when she was younger.”

As you can see Diana is a woman of many talents and her skills and her enthusiasm are an incredible asset to the Tell team. Every event with Diana is a joy to work on and we’re thrilled to have her on board!
