Cheiron Coelho

After attending Melbourne University in Australia, our roving International columnist, Cheiron Coelho, traveled extensively for two years throughout Asia, African and Europe.

In 1986, Cheiron opened a restaurant on the beach in Goa, India. An instant hit, the restaurant enjoyed great success until the early 90s when, after wooing and marrying his Danish girlfriend, together they relocated to Aarhus, Denmark.

Coelho moved to Copenhagen in 1996 and began a career as a writer with the now defunct news magazine, Rapporten, where he was their first and last foreign editor.

Subsequently, he developed an award winning career writing documentaries for television, culminating in a European best prize award in 2001 at the Parma Documentary Film Festival in Italy. To date, approximately 80 million people have seen the piece and Eurosport showed it a record 4 times.

He has covered events for television and print media the world over. Most recently he worked with the BBC on a project in Ecuador, and for numerous TV stations from around the world. And has also taught film scripting and screen writing skills at courses for Superchannel.dk.

Currently, he is in the throes of writing a film script to be filmed by a Danish director for a German production company and when done will move one to direct a new reality TV series.
