Jamie Parker-East has been a regular fixture of the YSTV studio since 2021, tending to stay there from the afternoon until early morning on his 'free days'. As a fresher Jamie remained a less active member of YSTV, only crewing the odd production, until term two of his first year where he became one of the most active members, joining both the Tech and Computing teams whilst also editing for the production team.

During Jamie's second term he worked alongside Cameron Fox in several productions and the two edited several productions together in collaboration. In the lead up to Roses 2022, in his third term, Jamie started to get involved with the more admin side of YSTV and ran three editing training sessions. With his experience and involvement with the post production side of YSTV and his history of working with Cameron Fox, Jamie decided to run for Head of Presentation alongside Cameron Fox in the 2022 elections. The two ran unopposed and became the co Heads of Presentation.

With a great ammount of training and support from Rhys Milling, in April 2022 Jamie joined the computing team with his python experience and limited knowledge of linux operating systems, from messing around with a Raspberry Pi. Jamie started off by taking on the project of making Karen more automated and during the preperation of Roses 2022 he created a user area for editors to use. In the early morning of the 6th May 2022 (just after Roses), while editing the general editor user area, Jamie accidently leant on the keyboard while connected to web server and managed to reboot web into an error loop, causing the website and computer domain to go down for a couple hours before it was fixed by Liam Burnand by instructing Jamie to press 'Ctrl + C'.

A key point in Jamie's computing career, although not actually involving YSTV, was when he managed to delete an important shared directory for a physics research group on York's Viking Cluster. This event cemented his position as a true member of the computing team, even rivaling many of Liam Burnand's own fuck ups.
