Paris Norriss

A seasoned British media personality based in the Gulf for the last 12 years, Paris currently presents and produces the Adventure TV show “Guy in Dubai” that broadcasts across the world on Amazon Prime and the global airline inflight network. 


Through the show, Paris has become an expert on the UAE, its history, culture, and the adventures and things to do across the country. As an adventurer, he becomes a licensed pilot, boat captain, skydiver, and the global ambassador to Padi for Scuba Diving and Free Diving. 


His energetic and quirky style has also led him to host several other TV shows and live events including the World Tour Golf Championship, the Emmy’s on OSN, and Dubai New Years' Eve at the Burj Khalifa.


Paris is regularly featured in international media as an advocate for adventure travel and has a weekly segment on Dubai Eye radio, a monthly business column in The National newspaper, and frequently a keynote speaker at live events on the subject. 

In 2017 he founded GID Media Production which currently produces and distributes TV shows to subscription video-on-demand platforms such as Amazon Prime, Apple TV, OSN, and across airline inflight entertainment systems globally. 


Paris received an M.A in Business Studies from Edinburgh University, majoring in finance.
