My name is Adam Ramsey and I am a half Malaysian, half Northern Irishman who was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I am a freelance reporter. After an internship with the BBC, I saved up some money and came to Cairo in May 2012 where I’ve been ever since.
This blog is a chronicle of all things Middle Eastern – political, economic, social and ecological – with a focus on Egypt. I am a writer first and foremost, but sometimes you’ll see some published photos and video I do.
I’ve worked for the Daily News Egypt newspaper and contributed to New Statesman, Atlantic Media, Christian Science Monitor, Irish Times, New Internationalist and VICE among others. I’m also the Cairo correspondent for Radio Television Hong Kong and you may see my ugly mug on Sky News from time to time.
