Mexico Elections I

I am a bilingual, experienced television producer and I have filmed, written and reported across the world.

I have reported on global astronomy in 2016 from the top of a 5,600m mountain in Chile, on the visit of Pope Francis to the Holy Land in 2014 and from Myanmar for its historic 2012 by-elections. In addition, I have covered social experiments in Denmark, the displacement of people in Georgia, elections in Mexico, the dhow industry in Oman and the 2014 World Cup.

I have more than six years’ experience working in the Sky News and Al Jazeera English 24-hour newsrooms, dealing with breaking news in the live, output gallery, building programmes and reacting to world events on-air.

I am also comfortable on the intake side as well, and work for NBC News on their foreign news desk in London: news-gathering, organising correspondent logistics and deployment, editing video and working towards TODAY and Nightly News, NBC’s primetime programmes in the US.

I have worked in business news as well, and spent 18 months writing Sky News’s live business news bulletins and market reports.

I was Sky News’ lead field-producer on the Ashya King story in Spain.

blogged, shot video and reported live in English for Sky News on the 2012 elections in Mexico.

I covered the 2009 swine flu outbreak from Mexico for the Reading Post and online, on TV and live breakfast radio for the BBC.

I have reported live in Spanish as well and have covered UK-related stories for the Colombian news channel Cable Noticias.

You can find me writing about Latin American film, dance and music for Sounds and Colours.
