Nadeem Ahmed's passion for travel and adventure has seen him kissing a shark, visiting the palaces of Kings, absorbing great architecture and taking to the natural springs all whilst filming in 50 degrees heat.
Nadeem made his name presenting travel films, lifestyle features and documentaries across local, national and international television and radio. Broadcaster Nadeem has reported from across the globe, interviewed the stars at our biggest events and found fame presenting a wide range of magazine programmes as well as music, showbiz and style output.
At the age of 15, Nadeem won a modelling competition that he knew nothing about as his sister had sent in his photos without telling him. Nadeem was soon the subject of local press interest, appeared on the cover of a youth magazine and was taken on by a modelling agent.
After several years modelling success, Nadeem set his sights on broadcasting and was taken on by BBC Radio Lancashire as a Trainee Producer. Nadeem was responsible for relaunching the station's late night programming and added an Arabic vibe for those listening in the small hours. Nadeem was invited to undertake some presenting duties and seized the opportunity.
TV stardom soon followed. Nadeem filmed documentaries in Dubai and Egypt in which he uncovered the country's hidden heritage.
Nadeem brought the sounds of Asia to a huge audience when he hosted weekly worldwide music programme Wagwan , Luv The Session and covered London Fashion Week for Fashion TV where, as well as getting the gossip from the designers and checking out the catwalk, he interviewed some of our brightest stars including Jennifer Saunders, Anne Robinson and Janet Street-Porter.
Not only that, but Nadeem even had a role in film blockbuster King of Bollywood starring Sophie Dahl and Om Puri when the team from Mumbai filmed in London.
Nadeem's desire to bring not only our own popular culture but also fascinating stories from around the world to an audience in his own trendy and laid back style make him ideal for fronting a range of lifestyle, entertainment and travel programming.
For now it’s a case of from catwalks to keyboards. This fascination with chill out music has become a bit of an obsession with him to the point where he has produced some breath-taking soul fulfilling music. ‘Beautiful Dreams’ – the album that is guaranteed to take you away to heavenly places.
From the BBC to Bollywood, Nadeem's versatility is the secret of his success.
