My journalistic career has taken me around the world. From covering events all over Europe and documentary-making in Thailand, to living and working in Sydney and New York for over ten years. After leaving university, I spent 8 years broadcasting at the BBC in London. Within three years of joining the BBC, I won a Sony Award (dubbed the Radio Oscars) for the first documentary I made, and became a familiar voice to 8 million listeners across Britain as Sazzle on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Sara Cox. I then joined Newsbeat, where I trained as a journalist. I spent the next four years in the newsroom, reporting from events like The Academy Awards and The Brit Awards, and presenting the nightly Entertainment News live to the UK.  


Hit by a severe case of Saturn Return, I decided to leave everyone I knew and loved to move to the other side of the planet. This daring decision meant the next 6 years were spent in Sydney, Australia, first Executive Producing Drive with comedians Wil Anderson and Lehmo for Triple M, broadcasting from Melbourne Comedy Festival many times, Adelaide Fringe and many music and sporting events across Australia. I was then asked to join the Australian Broadcasting Corporation to spearhead some of ABC triple j's biggest campaigns; The Hottest 100 series


Once again, I craved a new territory to conquer. New York beckoned. I worked towards this goal with fervour and achieved it in January 2012. I moved my career into TV journalism, reporting on Idris Elba's Channel 4 documentary How Clubbing Changed the World, covering NY Comic Con for British Sky Broadcasting and taking on the role of New York field producer on Hulu's Elite Model Look.  For two years, I wrote a column for Expedia's City Diaries: NYC, unearthing New York's most fascinating events and querkiest characters, and I've written for some of the world's largest media including Grazia, Men's Health and The Daily Mail, Mailonline. I'm also a contributor for The Huffington Post.


Comedy has always been a huge passion of mine, I've worked with comedians for years. Where better to study humour-writing than in the city Jerry Seinfeld calls home? Numerous Gotham Writers courses later, I call myself a humourist (that's more your call than mine, but I'm sticking with it) and write humourous personal essays which I grandly state are in the style of David Sedaris. Judge for yourself; some of these pieces can be found on my blog. I was a guest presenter on Sirius XM's outrageous comedy network Raw Dog. I was never asked back. My joke about Billy Crystal looking more like an elderly lesbian with each passing year might have ruffled some feathers.

Two beautiful children later, I've swapped Brooklyn for Brighton where I had a weekly TV slot with Bill Smith on Latest News talking about Jazz and I continue to write and develop ideas. I'm currently working with 3 of the UK's most prolific comedians on their podcasts.


I'm also an artist and run my own business: Delphio facial oil. 

I'm married to one of the world's top drummers. You can find out more about my fabulously talented musician husband here: Darren Beckett.
