I’m Alex, a photographer and audio producer based in the UK. I started my career in 2014 freelancing in the UAE, where I was brought up. Then I moved to Bristol for a while, then to Beirut.

Now I live in Brighton, on the south coast of the UK, and split my time between photography assignments and making radio documentaries – both of which I love equally. 

I’m a producer at Kerning Cultures, a podcast which has been described as “a This American Life for the Middle East” by The Guardian and “beautifully done ... the time spent listening gets us all one step closer to better understanding those whose lives seem very different from our own” by Sarah Jessica Parker.

I’m also a contributing producer on The Guardian’s daily podcast Today in Focus.

Here’s a Spotify playlist of every podcast and radio story I’ve produced or co-produced.

I’ve worked with: The New York Times, The Guardian, Monocle, Radiolab, 99% Invisible, NPR’s Throughline, The National, Airbnb, Dubai Tourism, Bloomberg News, De Volkskrant, Freunde von Freunde, EasyJet, British Airways, Brownbook, HUCK, Norwegian Air, Open Skies, PRI’s The World, Republik, Smith Journal.

Interviews & features: The NationalFreunde von FreundeFotoRoom , Fisheye, Open Skies, c41
