About Me

I am an award-winning journalist covering news stories globally for respected newspapers and websites.

An experienced interviewer and skilled investigative reporter, I specialise in delving behind the headlines to write in-depth features with a hard news angle.

In addition to my print articles, I also produce video interviews which have appeared on major outlets including Entertainment Tonight, Extra and DailyMail.com.

After 10 years working in Los Angeles I moved back to the UK in May 2020. I now cover London and the south coast and am happy to travel nationally or internationally for work when needed. 

If you have a story and need a trustworthy and empathetic journalist to help tell it, please get in touch via email at: hugodanieljournalist@gmail.com
