RADIO and AUDIO
I work as a freelance journalist and broadcaster - as a presenter, reporter, producer and commentator.
My past and current client list includes a wide variety of radio stations in the UK and overseas. I regularly work for BBC Sport, including commentating for Radio 5 Live, presenting duties on Radio Scotland as well as writing for its website.
Formerly, I was Scotland correspondent for talkSPORT and served as head of sport and presenter at its sister station, talk107, in Edinburgh, then the only speech station in the UK based outside London. I was involved in its launch in 2006 - and in developing its programming and sports news from inception as well as much-praised live events.
My specialities as a broadcaster include basketball - where I commentate regularly for the BBC- as well as athletics and the business and governance of sport. I formerly produced and presented the Basketball 24/7 radio show.
I previously worked as an analyst and reporter on BBC's Five Live's specialist basketball show 'Hoops' and have appeared on a variety of other stations including BBC Radio 1/4/5 Live, ESPN, Radio Ulster, LBC, Forth and ABC (Australia).
I produce and host a regular podcast, The MVP Cast, focusing on basketball.
Additionally, Additionally, I provide broadcasting reports from events on a sponsored or pooled basis, with tailored packages for clients - for example, with a feed from the Cricket World Cup or from Super Bowl.

TELEVISION and VIDEO
I appear on a number of UK broadcasters, including BBC/Sky Sports/Freesports (basketball), BT Sport (European rugby) and was the regular sideline reporter for Sky Sports basketball coverage as well as one of its rotation of commentators, having also been one of their regular studio analysts for their coverage of the NBA.
Having previously fronted FIBA Europe's TV coverage from major basketball games, I now commentate on the British Basketball League on a weekly basis for livebasketball.tv, YouTube and other outlets and have co-hosted major finals on screen.
I'm also regularly asked to appear on other television programming to provide expert analysis. One example is when Sky News needed a commentator on David Beckham's move to American soccer, a subject which I have written about extensively.
As well as presenting and guesting, I also shoot and edit reports for broadcast and online outlets, such as this two-way from Super Bowl. I can provide and utilise my own equipment and deliver in whichever format required by the client.
