I make regular appearances on TV as a sports analyst, often to discuss snooker and darts.

Sports Reporter

During 2015 and 2016, I worked extensively on Made in Cardiff’s sports programming, as well as making occasional features for the channel’s main evening news programme.

Most of my sports features were based on snooker, darts and American Football. You can view my showreel by clicking here.

Feature subjects include:

  • Kishan Hirani, one of Wales’s leading young amateur snooker players who went on to play on the professional tour.
  • Anthony Davies, a former professional snooker player who famously beat Stephen Hendry at the 2001 British Open, and went on to become the Wales national snooker coach.
  • Sam Thomas, a young snooker player and trick shot specialist with a worldwide following on YouTube.
  • Rhys Griffin, a semi-professional darts player who has beaten several of the world’s leading players.
  • An evening at the Cardiff and District Darts League, one of the most competitive county leagues in the country.
  • Duane Jones, an up-and-coming professional tour snooker player and a former IBSF World 6 Reds champion. Jones reached the semi-finals of the German Masters in 2019.
  • A training and recruitment day with American Football side the South Wales Warriors.

  • Politics

    With my ‘political hat’ on, I have made appearances on a number of international TV channels to discuss Brexit, including Russia 1 and EKOTÜRK, along with several appearances on the BBC Wales debate programme The Hour.

    In more recent times, I have appeared on RT (though not since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which I have repeatedly condemned) and Talk TV.
