An award-winning international journalist since 1992, Nick is our Director of Communications and has advised many clients in the anti-corruption and anti-extremism fields.

Previously communications director for anti-extremism organisation, HOPE not hate , his clients have included the UK government’s Cabinet Office, the Centre for Financial Crime & Security Studies (at RUSI), plus international NGOs such as the ICRC, Muslim Aid, Health Poverty Action and Children on the Edge.

As a journalist, he has reported from conflict zones, written from the townships of South Africa, undertaken investigations into gold selling in virtual games, visited Kurdistan, produced longform Ponzi investigations, covered the case of the ‘American Taliban’, and witnessed the birth of an amazing TV network which helped unite the Kurdish nation (for WIRED).

An early digital adopter, Nick was an editor for the Royal Geographical Society’s magazine, Geographical, pioneering its online expansion. He has gone on to manage websites, as well as lead branding, social media and digital management, plus run podcasts, for various clients.

Nick is also the author of a critically-acclaimed exposé of extreme-right movements across the globe, called HOMELAND: Into a World of Hate, described as “reportage of the most illuminating kind” by the Times Literary Supplement, “a tremendous scary exposé” by The Independent, and “a heart of darkness” by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

In addition, he was Creative Producer of the BBC One TV drama England Expects, which was inspired by HOMELAND, and have consulted on numerous other TV projects, including helping to create the BBC2 documentary Welcome To The Mosque (which in turn helped lay the foundations for the award-winning ‘I’m Not A Monster’ podcast).
