User Bio

More than a decade in TV/Radio news and current affairs after a post-grad in a Masters in Script-Writing, a Degree in Philosophy/Politics, a Postgrad in Broadcast Journalism and the in-house BBC trainee scheme. Reporting/Presenting for BBC, ITN and SKY in the UK, SBS and ABC in Australia and Channel 1 in Japan. Writing features, documentaries and shorts for BBC, SBS, Bloomberg, CNN and various independents.

I'm a professional writer, presenter and MD Zeitgeist Theatre Company that produces films, scripts, videos and stage plays about social issues.

One of my own plays (the State We're In) starred Sam West in London and Michael Byrne in Edinburgh (based on the true story of late-protestor Brian haw).

I'm interested in politics, environment and making a stand on things that matter! I blog for various sites, have been a guest TV panellist, write the odd article to vent my outrage on power-abuse and corruption and try my best to be counted when it comes to issues that affect our quality of life.
