I am a technology reporter, presenter and consumer champion working across TV, print and online. My beat includes cyber security, online safety and scams, as well as mobile, telecoms and enterprise tech.
My career began in the technology industry, leading major IT transformation projects in the financial services, media and telecoms sectors for companies including IBM, Reuters and Dell.
For the last ten years I have been BBC Rip Off Britain resident technology expert; I also investigate and expose cyber-scams for programmes including Watchdog, Crimewatch, Morning Live and The One Show, and explain how technologies from deepfakes and generative AI to social media are changing our lives for Channel 4’s Steph’s Packed Lunch.
As a journalist and writer, my bylines have regularly featured in national newspapers and specialist titles including Metro, Computer Weekly, Wired, CNET, TechRadar and International Business Times.
In-demand as a conference host and speaker, I combine journalistic curiosity with tech industry background to moderate roundtables and panels, and to deliver enlightening and engaging keynote speeches across the world.
