I am a bilingual, experienced television producer and I have filmed, written and reported across the world on a range of global stories.
I reported on volcano eruptions from Cape Verde and Iceland in 2018, covered astronomy from the top of a 5,600m mountain in Chile in 2016, went to the Holy Land for the visit of Pope Francis in 2014 and I reported 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, border politics in Ecuador/Colombia, the dhow industry in Oman and the 2014 World Cup.

Where did it start? Swine flu coverage…
I have an undergraduate degree from Edinburgh University in Spanish & Politics and a master’s degree from City, University of London in Broadcast Journalism.
I also covered the 2009 swine flu outbreak from Mexico for the Reading Post and online, on TV and live breakfast radio for the BBC.
