I make award-winning media content. My experience in producing material for online, audio and visual broadcasts, podcasts and digital social media content means I can adapt content to the platform you use.
I’ve been a journalist for more than 30 years, starting in local newspapers in Britain, before moving to join BBC radio, and then television. I’m currently producing content on BBC Radio 4 and BBC World Service.
I’ve reported from around the world, including for the United Nations English Language service, based at UN HQ in New York, but I have particular expertise in reporting on Northern Ireland. I spent more than 15 years as a journalist in Belfast, mainly working for the BBC, but with some work for the Mirror.
I was the assistant producer and reporter for the political programme Hearts and Minds. In 2009 I was named ‘Journalist of the Year’ by the political website Slugger O’Toole.
I have advised visiting broadcasters such as Al Jazeera English, on coverage of Northern Ireland, and work as a commentator for others like UTV.
