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

Career highlights include reporting on hostility faced by Middle Eastern refugees in the US, a series on Islamist violence in East Africa and Nairobi’s Westgate mall siege of 2013, reportage in Haiti’s quake-struck capital in 2010, and bringing atrocities to light at the end of Sri Lanka’s civil war in 2009.

My clients include Foreign Policy, Al Jazeera, Esquire, The Times, Fox News, France 24, CBC, dpa, RTÉ 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.
