About me

I am an ambitious and enthusiastic political journalist keen to make sense of the issues. I am constantly looking to broaden my skills and make new contacts. I am always on the lookout for a good story.

I have worked in political journalism for more than 15 years, starting out at the BBC based in the UK and then from Brussels, reporting the European Union for the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 News, as well as other major broadcasters around the world.

I have a good understanding of how the EU works, and how and why it is relevant to the UK. This requires making sense of complex issues, constantly keeping up to speed with developments and looking at all sides of the story.

I regularly interview politicians from across the political spectrum, as well as campaigners, celebrities, and business people.

Combined with my work as a journalist, I provide lectures and workshops to students on journalism and political reporting, and moderate conferences, events and debates.

I am the co-founder of a Brussels-based choir managing rehearsals and concerts in Belgium and around Europe.
