Special Correspondent on the print edition of the Daily Mirror from 2016 to 2022, I am an international journalist with an outstanding reputation gained from 20 years experience in high-pressure roles. Over the last year I have been published in a wide range of publications including The Daily Telegraph's Global Health Security section, The Guardian, Law.com and The Sun on Sunday. With a focus on investigations, humanitarian emergencies and foreign reportage, my writing puts serious and engaging stories on the front pages. In 2017, I was awarded the Features Journalism accolade at the British Journalism Awards and the International Press category in Italy’s coveted Premio Luchetta. I was 2014 Feature Writer of the Year at the UK Press Awards, for which I was shortlisted for eight consecutive years, three times as Environment Reporter of the Year. Outside of the newsroom, my work includes television documentaries, public relations, books, university lecturing, and curated media training for international non-governmental organisations. I authored two acclaimed non-fiction books, one of which was shortlisted for the UK Travel Book of the Year in 2007. More recently, I was a production consultant on the Channel 4 three-part documentary series Murder in the Alps. Since 2021, I have been a visiting lecturer on the MA International Journalism course at City University, conducting seminars and offering supervision for students during magazine production, core assignments and their final project.
