EU journalist and digital rights expert, currently on the lookout for more freelance gigs

About Me

I’ve been a journalist for nearly 20 years (ouch that makes me sound old — let's just say I started young). For the last 8+ I have specialised in EU technology and security policy. I’ve written for some of the biggest names in the business, ArsTechnica, ComputerWeekly, Politico, Macworld, TechHive, PCworld, CIO, and The Register, as well as non-specialist publications.
I have been working primarily as a reporter for the past few years, but have solid experience as a commissioning editor and running a team, both for my own company, business to business organisations, and a national daily paper — although small, Malta is still, technically, a nation ;-) 
I also do a lot of video and live events which means I know many of the movers and shakers in the European tech scene.
I don't do "churnalism" (ghastly term, ghastly results), but I do do great, tailored copy for discerning clients.

Experience

EU policy reporter

I am steeped in EU policy issues, covering everything from competition law to the migration crisis. Although specialised in digital, security and tech issues including data protection, copyright and telecoms law, I cover all EU news, and regularly write for ArsTechnica UK, Politico Europe, ComputerWeekly, IAPP, Eureka, and NewEurope. I also present live coverage of breaking EU news for BBC Radio Wales as well as NewsTalk ZB, BBC 5 Live, India Today and FSN, most recently reporting extensively on the Brussels terror attacks and the Brexit referendum.
