About Me


After reading my biography on the side bar, you’re clearly here to find out more about the fetching young man pictured at the Plaza de España in Seville.

Well, you’ve come to the right place.

I am indeed a qualified journalist with five years of experience working at Sky News and BT Sport in London.  During this time, this website has served as a travelogue and a place to write my thoughts on the news of the day.  Reading through the articles of the past few years, it’s interesting to see where time has proved my assessments right or wrong using the benefit of hindsight!

If you’re interested in reading some of my published work, please take a look at http://chrisatkinonline.com/published-work/

For now I’m stepping away from full-time work to pursue a long-held ambition: to learn Spanish abroad.  I will chart my progress on this site with regular video updates so you can follow my journey and laugh at my missteps along the way.
