Hello! I’m the BBC’s reporter in San Francisco, covering technology across North America. I’ve been here since 2015 after spending four years on the BBC’s technology news desk in London.

You can see, hear and read my work across the BBC’s TV channels, radio stations and website. In the USA? Here’s a channel finder.

Most often I am to be found on Click, World Business Report and the Today programme.

My blog, where I chronicle the latest news and trends in Silicon Valley, can be read here.

I’m most excited to cover technology that has a meaningful effect on people’s lives. If you send me something that does that, I’ll listen. I don’t cover funding rounds.

Also found covering breaking news stories of all kinds on the US west coast.
