Alice Holtham, Group Editor

Alice’s textbook Dubai love story began in 2015, and seven years later she still can’t get enough of the city. Her main interests include trying to guess where Sheikh Hamdan is dining next, attending every Jason Derulo performance in Dubai, and avoiding anything that requires getting out her adventure shoes.

Miles Buckeridge, Deputy Editor

If it involves half remembered podcasts, burgers, 3am discussions on the profundity of the universe, Steve Irwin, movies, spirit animals, hypothetical ‘would you rathers’, sci-fi, hip hop, Family Guy quotes, impressions, strong opinions on 90s kid’s shows, sunset beach bars, the life and works of Russell Brand, peroxide or What’s On in Abu Dhabi, Miles is your man. *does finger guns*

Dinesh Ramanathan, Deputy Editor

“A fan of period dramas, HBO content and rooftop eateries, Dinesh enjoys uncovering hidden gems around town as much as he does 90s trends. A self confessed night owl, you’re likely to find him listening to the Deftones or watching sports science documentaries during the wee hours. In the office, he lives by the motto, “Teamwork makes the dream work”.

Aarti Saundalkar, Online Reporter

A reporter on the hunt for the next big arts and culture event, gallery or museum opening, the next big must-see performance, and more. Ask Aarti about any of these related topics in the UAE and she can probably talk your ear off – or you’ll find her zooming off to learn more about it. She’s currently on a personal mission to learn about masterpieces during the Renaissance period.

Tamara Wright, Online Reporter

When not engrossed in the latest happenings and hidden gems of Dubai, Tamara is most likely to spend her mornings at the beach with a good book and matcha, and her evenings eating out with her family. A Pisces with a strong love for the sea, Tamara is also a big fan of pilates, Sundays, blue zones, crime shows, cooking shows, and, ironically, doing absolutely anything to avoid having to cook dinner.

Shelby Gee, Junior Reporter

Self-described as a quick witted dog mom, Shelby is all about ticking off all the bucket list UAE experiences, although she’s just as happy checking-out fun-filled restaurants and bars as she is at home backing cakes in the kitchen. After eight years in Dubai, Shelby is down to try just about any new experience the city has to offer… especially those that take a bit more convincing for the average person.
