Sport is about so much more than winning and losing. It's a window onto the world, and a great vantage point to look at the social issues that affect the lives of millions of people - in Britain and across the globe.

Since the 2010 World Cup in South Africa I've led the sports coverage for Channel 4 News. I've reported extensively on the Paralympics and their legacy; racism in football - here in the UK and notably during the 2012 European Championship; the Tour de France and doping; and the rise of Russia as a global sporting power. And I've interviewed some of the biggest names in world sport: from global icons such as Usain Bolt, David Beckham and Mo Farah - to new stars such as the boxer Nicola Adams and sprinter Jonnie Peacock.

When not reporting sports stories, you may see me presenting Channel 4 News' noon bulletin.

While running Channel 4 News' Washington Buro (2005 - 2007) I covered Hurricane Katrina, and the politics behind the Iraq war - including an exclusive behind the scenes visit to Guantanamo Bay. I returned to the USA for Barak Obama's historic Presidential run in 2008.

A story I narrated about the Iraq war 'surge' won the RTS foreign news award in 2007. I covered the Soham trial as a producer on our Home Affairs unit in 2003.

And I joined the team as a sports producer in 2001.
