In a journalism career spanning over 30 years, I have done nearly every kind of role, from news reporter to bureau chief, from editing and commissioning to running a team of reporters.
I have spent three years based in Jerusalem and helped the South African Jewish community relaunch its newspaper. I have edited and commissioned a colour magazine and won several awards for my journalism. Among my awards are two from the Newspaper Society and the Catherine Pakenham Prize for young women journalists.
I’ve interviewed major celebrities and been a media commentator on UK radio and TV, including Sky, BBC (News 24,The World Tonight), and many BBC local radio programmes. The only thing I haven’t done is sport – but I’d be willing to try.
I have a talent. It’s one refined over three decades of journalism, talking to the great, the good, and the sometimes not-so-great; the ones who don’t know how to respond, and the ones who don’t know when to shut up.
When you have been working in journalism in the Jewish community as long as I have, you get to know a lot of people. And I mean a lot.
My work has been published in a range of UK and international media, including: The Times, Jewish Chronicle, Jerusalem Post, Jewish News, LA Jewish Journal, Times of Israel, Jewish Weekly San Francisco, JWire Australia, and Cosmopolitan.
