A London-based multi-award winning reporter, with data journalism skills to complement traditional investigative muckracking. Published by Reuters, the BBC, Greenpeace, openDemocracy, EUobserver, The Black Sea, The Canary, DeSmog, Investigate Europe. First to prove who truly owns UK's fishing rights. I have also reported for Swiss Leaks, Facebook Leaks, The Daphne Project, as well as helped openDemocracy set up their openMedia section by investigating commercial pressure inside newsrooms, among others. My reporting usually digs in on where corporate greed meets public sector corruption, causing poverty and distress. This is why I have a cross-border approach, and why I am versed in transparency laws in several jurisdistions. I have co-authred a manual in investigative reporting and data journalism for reporters in opaque countries; contributed to The Data Journalism Handbook - 2nd edition; have been commission to research what became the Master's Degree in Investigative Journalism for the Western Balkans and Turkey; and have trained thousands of journalists and students. I have also created and run Data Harvest's three data journalism strands for four consecutive years (2016-2019) and was the first to introduce a Train-The-Trainers pre-conference day here, with international contributions. I have been a globe-trotter, teaching journalism to accross the map.
