I make news, features, radio and I'm meant to be "responsible for changing how TV is watched", apparently.

I tell innovative stories in innovative ways... or try to. I keep busy trying to guess what the next step of news storytelling will be.

I'm now deputy editor of metro.co.uk. We've grown a lot but I'm still figuring it out... and will never actually figure it fully unless the internet stops changing.

I'm BBC News alumnus, I set up and established @BBCQuestionTime (sorry/you're welcome), helped to make Click "innovate in new media" and came up with all manner of silly ideas.

While journalisting, I write/am writing/have written for BBC News, Newsbeat, Time Out, Guardian, Mirror, New Statesman and others.

I intermittently make things for YouTube (that's Talking Shop) and mess around with other projects I'll link to here when established.

I was one of Broadcast magazine's rising stars, I got nominated for two British Media Awards and I've won two Sony Gold Awards (they're now called ARIAs).

I'm currently writing a novel that at least one person will read and I play music on my own (there'll be more on that soon).

Beyond that, I write things for magazines every so often. Occasionally, alarmingly occasionally, I sleep.

Oh, and the Hackney Heroine saved my life during the London Riots.
