I'm an independent journalist specialising in investigative news, an author, and a photographer.
A recent investigation for the Mail on Sunday, for example, looked into the rise of moped-enabled crime by gangs in London.
I've been a member of the National Union of Journalists for 27 years and a few of the organisations I've worked with are listed here.
Photographic projects have included working with Compton Verney art gallery to promote its In-Light II exhibition.
I've written two books about jihadism and terrorism, called Terror Tracker and Terror Base UK.
I have substantial expertise in areas that include extremism and political violence, technology, and social media.
I'm often asked to provide an expert opinion on these subjects, as can be seen in a piece in The Times.
I've been experimenting with technology and photography since the 1980s.
