About

I am a TV, radio and digital news correspondent, with nearly a decade of experience working in foreign news at major TV channels, from NBC and Al Jazeera English, to Sky News, TRT World and CGTN.

I am currently a correspondent with Feature Story News in Paris, where I have been covering the latest on the coronavirus pandemic from France.

This year, I have also reported on the strikes and protests against pension reform that were held on a weekly basis before the pandemic took hold.

In 2020, I have reported from France, Italy and the Netherlands, covering the pandemic but also global warming in the Alps, the future of tourism and the sustainability of fashion at Paris’s annual shows.

I moved to Paris in January 2020 after spending six months reporting for Feature Story News in Russia, from Moscow and Sochi.

Before that, I worked as a deputy news editor on the foreign news desks at NBC News and Al Jazeera English in London.

I spent six years at Sky News as an output producer and then as a business producer.

I have run this blog (and it remains to this day) independent from all those news associations since September 2010, travelling across the world to report on stories.

It has a mix of the news stories and Latin American film & music reviews.

Reports overseas from:

2019: Bolivia (landslide in La Paz) UK (urban regeneration in London) 

2018: Mexico (general election) Cape Verde (volcanic activity)

From 2010-2017 I reported from many other countries including Tanzania, Georgia, Oman, Denmark, Ecuador and Myanmar
