I am a sports broadcaster, journalist and event host with over 15-years-experience in the industry. My career to date has seen me cover multiple World Cups, Olympic Games, Grand Slams and Majors and interview the likes of Lionel Messi, Usain Bolt, Roger Federer and Tiger Woods.
I have filmed the highest-altitude football match at the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, beat Diego Maradona at a kick-up challenge and boxed with Mike Tyson in a makeshift ring in his Dubai hotel suite. Needless to say, I didn’t win!
I am currently a freelance sports consultant with award-winning digital agency Seven League. I work as a journalist and presenter for The Football Association and FIFA, including at the 2019 Women’s World Cup. I also commentate on
European football, the English Football League and the Women’s Super League for various clients and write for Tifo Football, Esquire and Vogue Man.
Prior to these roles, I was a senior journalist with beIN Sports. Along with overseeing editorial for English News, I commentated on LaLiga, Serie A and Ligue 1, was Olympics correspondent for Rio 2016 and hosted a Champions League instant highlights show.
I am originally from Leicester and was also fortunate to follow my hometown club for ESPN as their lead Leicester City writer during the Foxes’ miraculous Premier League triumph in 2015-16.
Right now, I split my time between London and New York, but have previously lived in the UAE and Qatar – somehow failing to get a tan in either! One of my proudest moments working
out in the Middle East was founding Sports Talk magazine. This was an exciting venture that saw me manage a small editorial team and produce cover shoots with Sir Alex Ferguson, Novak Djokovic and Kobe Bryant.
I have also been a sports presenter for the Arabian Radio Network, editor of Middle East Golfer, Chelsea commentator for Smooth FM and a sports reporter for BBC 5 Live and Radio 1 since graduating from Oxford University in English in 2004.
Away from work, my adorable goldendoodle named Winnie the Poodle occupies most of my time and I dabble in stand-up comedy. I am always open to new opportunities, so please do get in touch if you’d like to work together.
