ABOUT ME

Writer . Video Journalist .Correspondent 

Most of my work involves self-shooting and editing packages or providing breaking news and sports reporting for Al Jazeera English. I also provide video for the BBC, Business Insider, Olympic Channel, Associated Press and others. I also have live capability via Aviwest, so can go on-location to film for correspondents of national and international news channels, or film guest injects for programmes.

My background is in newspapers and online. I was a beat reporter in London before writing for the UK nationals, and then spent five years on the sports desk at Al Jazeera.

I also write articles and agency copy at major sporting events such as the Rugby World Cup and Olympics. Other written work includes translations from Swedish and French to English, copywriting, and scripting for online and broadcast video.

When not in the field I can be found in the studio - presenting or voicing sports bulletins, or as an on-set guest for channels such as France 24 and on international news podcasts. I've also done voice work for Eurosport and French Ligue 1 football, and provide live match commentary for the European Cricket network in my spare time.

I own a wide range of kit suitable for projects of every size and nature. Keeping my camera equipment in-house means you avoid the additional costs and hassle associated with hiring and I can ensure that each item is well maintained. I have a thorough technical knowledge of all my equipment and would be happy to make recommendations based on your requirements.
