Welcome to my website!
For the last five years I’ve been a News Correspondent and Presenter for Sky News. But since the big Brexit vote last year, I’ve been working on the business brief, extensively reporting on the reaction and economic consequences of voting to leave the EU. This includes the impact of rising inflation on households and businesses, uncertainty surrounding leaving the single market, the monetary policy of the Bank of England and the effect on the UK retail sector.
In the months after Brexit I produced an exclusive report examining the position of foreign workers in the UK. In an interview for the piece, the boss of Deloitte confirmed for the first time that the company would move its business if the government’s stance on immigration was too strong.
This adds to other high profile and news-making interviews with Lady Martha Lane-Fox, Willie Walsh, Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley, CEO of Heathrow John Holland-Kaye, CEO of Ford Mark Fields and the bosses of various supermarkets including John Lewis and Morrisons.
In my years at Sky News I have also presented the Business News, Sports News and World News bulletins.
Prior to Sky News, I was based in Moscow for four years as an International Correspondent and Business Anchor for RT. In that time, I hosted the St Petersburg Economic Forum for the channel, interviewing the President of Lukoil and former head of the World Bank James Wolfensohn. I also secured interviews with former weapons inspector Hans Blix and Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders.
I travelled all over Russia, the post-Soviet states and Europe to report on breaking news stories such as the recognition of Kosovo, the political crisis in Ukraine and a terror attack on the Moscow Metro system. I also produced extended feature reports on domestic violence, the isolation of the disabled and parental kidnapping. The latter involved tracking down one of Interpol’s most-wanted Britons and securing an interview for my piece.
I started my career in newspapers before joining regional BBC and doing a stint as a newsreader for various commercial radio stations.
I studied English and German at the University of Nottingham and gained a PG Diploma in Broadcast Journalism from Cardiff University.
