Hello. I work for BBC Stories, the digital current affairs unit of BBC News. Basically, I give people something to look at when they’re bored at work.

I specialise in longform narrative storytelling. Have a look at my portfolio and check out some of the yarns I’ve worked on, why don’t you?

Prior to Stories I was a feature writer and editor on its predecessor, BBC News Magazine. Also at the BBC, I’ve covered Parliament, kept millions of readers on top of major breaking stories, reported from high-profile criminal trials, run live pages and travelled the US covering two federal elections.

In an even earlier existence I worked for national newspapers as a news reporter, features writer and music critic. I have 100 wpm shorthand and like my tea strong, no sugar.

It’s nice to meet you. Say hullo.
