About me

Location Dhaka, Bangladesh
Introduction This is a personal blog, and any views are solely mine. I am a UK based journalist who until July 2017 was based in Bangladesh writing for various international media outlets including Al Jazeera, The Daily Telegraph, The Wire, The Scrolll. I also worked between 2010 to 2016 at the Bangladesh national newspaper, New Age and before that for six month stints at bdnews24.com and The Daily Star. Between 2000 and 2009, I was the Executive Director of the Centre for Corporate Accountability, a UK based not-for-profit organisation concerned with workplace safety. Before that, I worked as a Television journalist and producer for about seven years working mainly for the television production company, Twenty Twenty Television in London. In 1995, I was involved in making the Royal Television Society award winning Channel Four documentary, the 'War Crimes File', a film about war crimes allegedly committed by three men during the 1971 War of Independence. I moved Dhaka since 2003. (see my other blog on the International Crimes Tribunal in Bangladesh: http://bangladeshwarcrimes.blogspot.com)
