I’m a NYC-based journalist who has worked in some 30 countries and won awards for stories from the US, Sri Lanka, Congo, Somalia, Haiti and Iran. I’ve covered everything from US election drama to war-crazed Somalis on Mogadishu’s backstreets, weaving together potent human interest tales with trenchant analysis.

I consider myself blessed to have covered some of this era’s key moments. Highlights include reporting on the rise of Trump, race riots in Ferguson, the terrorist siege of Nairobi’s Westgate shopping mall, Somalia’s civil war and its devasating human toll, an earthquake that levelled Haiti’s capital city and state-backed atrocities at the end of Sri Lanka’s civil war.

My clients include Foreign Policy, Al Jazeera, Esquire, The Times, Fox News, France 24, CBC, dpa, RTÉ, The Lancet and The National: chiefly print but plenty of photography and broadcast work as well. I’m bilingual, English and Spanish, and hold a Sussex University degree in English and a postgraduate diploma in journalism.
