I’ve been a professional journalist for 17 years and taught the subject at various institutions, including London Metropolitan and Birkbeck University, since 2008.
As a freelance writer, author and broadcaster, I have written for Empire, Yahoo, The Sun, The Mirror and hundreds more, as well as been a television producer for Sky1, ITV and Channel 4.
I lived for three years in Los Angeles as the West Coast Bureau Chief of Press Association covering The Oscars, the Golden Globes and the Grammys and have written four non-fiction books. I’m currently working on my fifth.
I’m also an aspiring young adult novelist with an MA in Creative Writing and am repped by Curtis Brown.
A senior lecturer since 2010, I have mainly focused on teaching broadcast and multimedia journalism.
I’m passionate about turning out students with 360-degree skills – people who can slot into any outlet and hit the ground running thanks to their ability to edit, shoot, use CMS, do a fantastic interview or simply write a great story.
This is a unique, challenging but ultimately brilliant time to be a young journalist and I’m excited to help the next crop – whether they be news hounds, multimedia content producers, or entrepreneurs finding the newest way to tell a story – make their mark.
