Kate-Lynne Wolmarans

Kate-Lynne Wolmarans is the digital editor of Raised in Dubai and educated in South Africa, Wolmarans brings an involuntary sarcastic tone to nearly everything she touches. Having previously worked with Hello! Middle East, she's well-rehearsed in celebrity news as well as all things fashion, travel and food related. When she's not tapping away on her keyboard, she can be found trolling the internet for new music, movies and memes.

Nathan Irvine

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.


Naina and quirky keepsakes go hand in hand. When she's not out discovering hidden food gems, she can be found writing local news stories and listicles.
