I'm an experienced journalist, and radio producer based in Dubai I'm currently a freelance producer and occasional presenter for the Business Breakfast programme on Dubai Eye. I've worked as the co-host and producer on The Agenda mid-morning phone-in programme on a regular basis. Before moving to Dubai, I lived in London in the UK. I spent just under a decade working for BBC Radio 4, producing respected news programmes, including Today, the World at One and PM, and most recently editing editions of The World Tonight. I've also spent time reporting from around the world, including China, Turkey and across Europe. Before my BBC days, I worked on London’s talk radio station, LBC, producing renowned talk show hosts Nick Ferrari and James O’Brien. During that time the Nick Ferrari Programme won a Sony Gold radio award for Best Breakfast Show, and the Arqiva Commercial Radio Award for Best Presenter of the Year. I write regular corporate newsletters for local companies, and hotel reviews for boutique hotel website Mr & Mrs Smith. I write for Villa 88 magazine, and I've run a wedding website called Before the Big Day for nearly five years.
I created this wedding blog five years ago, and it was exceedingly well received in the wedding industry - the website won Editor's Pick at the prestigious Wedding Blog Awards 2013, and also notched up two other nominations, including Best Real Weddings Blog and Best London Blog.
