Editor

I'm an editor because...

Head shot of Elias smiling at the camera

I love the rush of a news cycle and finding out more information about something during research for articles. More than anything, though, I love writing.

I lead a team of journalists at the Retail Gazette. I sub edit their news reports and features, set the news agenda for the day and provide feedback and guidance on how to best approach article ideas.

I’m profoundly deaf in my left ear and have severe hearing loss in my right. I was born and raised in Australia and at school I had a support teacher and an FM microphone device. At university I had a notetaker and received a small extension on some of my assignment deadlines.

When I’m interviewing someone I always try to meet them in a quiet place. There’s nothing worse than conducting an interview when there’s lots of background noise or wind interfering with the mic.

I speak English, Arabic and a bit of French. I’ve lived in London for three years and absolutely love it.
