Hello, I'm a British television producer and presenter who is currently based in Dubai in the Middle East.


I began my career in England in 2000, working on programs produced for Channel 4, Channel 5, MTV and E! Entertainment.


In 2009 I was given the opportunity to relocate to the United Arab Emirates and produce lifestyle formats for national broadcaster Dubai One. A pilot produced in 2011 turned into 4 seasons and over 685 episodes of live prime time television.

I joined 'Emirates News' as a Bulletin Editor in 2014, overseeing content broadcast from our Dubai studio to 16 countries across the Middle East and North Africa.


2016 marked a huge change in my career when I began anchoring weekly segments. This quickly led to me becoming an established part of the on air lineup both in the studio and on location.

In 2020 I began hosting Dubai One's COVID-19 awareness shows 'Stay At Home' and 'Stay Responsible', interviewing experts and providing the latest up to date information on the search for a cure. I also hosted Dubai One's 3-hour live coverage of the launch of the UAE Hope Probe to Mars and the signing of the peace accord between the UAE & Israel at the White House.

During the recent lock-down I began investigating the unsolved murder of my neighbor in 1998. A podcast series detailing what I discovered will be out soon.
