Crystal Skinner also known as Crystal Van Lloy via Equity UK, is currently a multimedia journalist and news anchor at the UAE's first and longest running newspaper - Khaleej Times. Aside from anchoring daily news bulletins, Crystal covers a range  of topics for video and print. Highlighted video work includes coverage for "The worlds longest zipline" "Dubai Film Festival" "Toruk - The First Flight" and "Emirates Airlines latest first class suites". Two of her best featured works, which Crystal solely produced and directed this year are named " Ashoka, the cat warrior" and " UAE National Day" With over 350k views "Ashoka - The Cat Warrior" showcases the heartwarming efforts of a Sri Lankan maid named Ashoka, who aims to save the stray cats of Dubai. The "UAE National Day" production video characterizes the universal love of the UAE by school children. The poem was also written by Crystal.

Premium print work includes review coverage on Dubai's first ever resident theatrical show "La Perle" directed by legendary Franco Dragone and an online write up of "The importance of recycling" which gained her much accreditation in the theatre and sustainability sectors within the UAE.

Alongside journalism, Crystal hosts events worldwide. From technology launches to awards nights and even children's healthy eating campaigns across schools. Her versatility and hard working efficiency is what really sets her aside as one of the top anchors in the UAE at present.

Crystal has a background in theatre and film, and still enjoys dabbling her feet in the arts. She can be seen in many TV commercials throughout the UAE over the past 5 years, for various well known brands such as HSBC and Samsung.

Also volunteer brand ambassador for World Green Citizen.Org- a platform to encourage eco- friendly living, Crystal cares very much for the welfare of the environment and practices what she preaches.
