About me

I’ve worked in world and national news for major international broadcasters since 1992. I lived and worked for the BBC in cities like London, New York and Washington and in countries like Australia, New Zealand and Canada. I established myorigins as a business in 2017 after years of researching for friends and family.

I will use my decades of experience in reporting, research, analysis and genealogy to create unique personal stories and histories for your ancestors, no matter where you live or the stage of your own family knowledge.
