Nathan Irvine is the editor of ShortList in the Middle East. Having found his way to Dubai from Manchester – via a 13 year stop in Bath – the afro-haired northerner has spent 16 years in the journalism industry. His list of previous employers includes The Guardian, FourFourTwo, Redbull and a number of video game publications where he swears he didn’t just play FIFA and Call of Duty all day. Honest. Now at the helm of ShortList, you can find him attending the opening of every new brunch, restaurant, bar and, erm, trampoline park.
