photoMy name is Caroline and I’m a journalist with experience in online, print and broadcast media, along with a bit of social media.

Currently, I am a reporter at the Independent. Alongside that I’m a digital sub-editor at the Sunday Times.

I’m interested in politics, crime and security, social affairs, health policy and international news – particularly north and west Africa, the Middle East and Europe.

Alongside this I also freelance, typically writing features on politics and society. My work has appeared in the Guardian, the Independent, Telegraph Online, the Yorkshire Post, the Observer and CityMetric (part of the New Statesman).

Before my current job(s), I was the sole reporter on London local paper, the West End Extra where I was responsible for covering general news, courts and crime, politics and everything else going on in the borough of Westminster.

Before that a night reporter at the Evening Standard, digital producer at London Live, digital sub-editor at the Times and a researcher for an independent TV company. I also got a front page splash at the Observer my first week out of university while doing work experience.

As a result, I’m rather busy. This  website is sadly neglected with a severely out of date blog.

Expert opinion on blogs (such as they are) tell me I should delete my blog if I don’t update it but I’m proud of the posts I have written as they chart my progress from the student wannabe I was when I started writing it. I will also hopefully write bits and pieces for it again. But for now consider the blog dead and more like an archive of my past thoughts.

This will be given a facelift and my CV will hopefully be remodelled to make it more user friendly over the next few months. In the meantime if you would like to get in touch with me to pitch ideas for articles or collaborative projects you can find my contact details here.

But not if you want to dump a press release on me. I will ignore it.
