I am a film maker, journalist and photographer based in Oxford, UK. Until January, 2015, I was the South East Asia TV correspondent for Agence France Presse and was based in Bangkok. I am as comfortable behind the camera as I am in front of one.
Over the past 18 months I covered the coup in Thailand, conflicts in Gaza and Ukraine as well as the World Cup in Brazil.
Before moving to Bangkok in May, 2013, I spent three years in Nairobi, covering the biggest news stories across Africa, from the wars in Congo and Somalia, to the African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea. Although I was working mainly for AFP, I also reported live for Sky News, France 24, CBC and numerous other radio stations. Alongside these, I worked for Channel 4 News and made films for various NGOs, including Action Aid's television commercials in Haiti, Myanmar and Afghanistan.
My career started as a radio and TV presenter in Oxford, before I moved to London to work as a presenter and video journalist for the Press Association. After a season presenting a Norwegian football show, I joined ITN as an assistant news editor for ITV news, and then joined the More4 and Channel 4 news team as a self-shooting producer/director.
