My stories have influenced and helped change EU and UK law.
It was my exclusive interview with David Cameron and subsequent campaign for justice for a brain-damaged footballer, that influenced a change in the law to give British crime victims greater protection abroad. Gina Martin did a story with me. I scooped the first interview with the an innocent Londoner held in an Iraqi jail on trumped up terror charges after campaigning for his release. I also got the exclusive on the first Polio victim in Australia for 21 years.
I love writing about equality and environmental issues at this Glamour UK story shows, but I am an all-round news hound with experience covering crime, politics, business, innovation, health, lifestyle and education.
Prior to going freelance, I shifted at the Evening Standard and Times Online, was assistant editor at the Surrey Comet and reported for Sutton Guardian and The Journal. My stories were often picked up by national newspapers, such as my campaign to get justice for footballer Robbie Hughes and a story about a BNP candidate who posed in a burqa and fishnets.
Before that I reported for Australia’s Leader Newspapers on the startling health, education and land inequalities facing indigenous communities. I also worked for Radio and Television Hong Kong in 2002 where I interviewed Filipino domestic workers facing physical and verbal abuse from their employers.
I now supply written work to a range of clients – from magazines to charities and supply a range of content services to businesses.
