About me

I am a journalist working as Head of Research & Investigations at civil liberties NGO, Big Brother Watch and as a freelance reporter.

I have extensive experience working on national newspapers and spent three years at DMG Media, working across the Daily Mail, the Mail on Sunday and the Irish Mail on Sunday.

My track record of stories rooted in open source intelligence and social media investigation include a front page on Theresa May’s dinner with the wife of a Russian oligarch, exclusives on Instagram drug dealers and defying legal pressure to reveal the sexual misconduct allegations behind a NUS officer’s suspension.

Other major bylines included front pages on a Dublin slum landlord illegally renting a single home to dozens of foreign students, Donal Trump’s refusal to pay for ‘Megxit’ and the tragedy of a child thrown off the top of the Tate Modern art gallery.

Further exclusives on a Labour candidate being investigated for errors on electoral forms, the secret online sex work of an dead teenage aristocrat & the Amnesty International foreign funding scandal in Ireland.

Leadership experience across six month regularly covering as Night News Editor at the Dail Mail, managing reporters and finding stories for the late edition.
