I am a journalist and writer. I am from Newcastle but have lived all over Europe and beyond.

I was a foreign news journalist with the BBC World Service for fourteen years. I worked as the BBC correspondent in both Sarajevo and Warsaw, and reported from across the world - from Russia and the Caucasus to Sierra Leone and the US.

For four years I was the Communications Director at the award-winning think tank the European Council on Foreign Relations.

My book - "Genoa 'La Superba': the rise and fall of a merchant pirate superpower" is being published in 2015.
