I am a British-Egyptian writer, journalist and translator of Arabic literature, with a passion for storytelling. Having lived and worked in Qatar, Kuwait, Cyprus and, briefly, in my native country, Egypt, I am now based in the UK.

I am also a video producer and worked as a programmes producer for several years at Al Jazeera English, before moving on to join AFPTV as a news producer. In 2012, I started freelancing for a number of production houses and broadcasters and have written features for various publications. I currently produce AFPTV’s Africa Weekly. a weekly programme of news and features from Africa.
