An award-winning and trusted presenter with more than 20 years experience in news reporting, production and presenting. I am a journalist who has worked at Al Jazeera English, CNN International, BBC World News, and BBC World Service.
I have a proven track record in covering major global news stories and events, conducting incisive, news- making interviews, driving fresh lines and pitching and uncovering new stories from various sources. I am also an award-winning reporter who has worked in hostile environments to rolling deadlines, collaborating with diverse teams and contributors to come up with creative solutions to any and all problems in the field (including conflicts and natural disasters), and deliver news as it happens without sacrificing quality and integrity of product. I am an experienced broadcast reporter, skilled in visual-storytelling, turning packages, filing live reports, writing blogs and other online content on diverse issues ranging from exclusive investigative stories to financial news and lighter features from the USA, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. I engage on social media, sharing news and on-the-spot information especially on Twitter with more than 10,000 followers.
I remain deeply knowledgeable about global issues as I am frequently hired to host and moderate panel discussions at high-level conferences and meetings on complex and sensitive issues such as climate change, pollution and sustainable development by the United Nations, the Red Cross Movement, the European Union. I am also an experienced communications consultant for humanitarian organisations in emergency situations. Now based in London, I am looking for challenging opportunities to contribute my skills and experience.
