Reporter, writer, producer
I'm Augusta, a journalist based in London focused on international news and politics.
In former lives I've been an English teacher in Hong Kong, a political staffer in Boston and once tried to serve Paul McCartney a miniature hot dog while dressed as Marilyn Monroe. I have an MS from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and an MA in History from the University of Edinburgh. I also spent a year on an international exchange at the University of Virginia.

I'm currently a Producer at CNN International where I produce, edit and program video news for the homepage and digital platforms. Before that I worked in CNN's New York bureau, covering high profile stories for TV, reporting news wires and writing digital articles. You can read some of my work for CNN here.
I've also worked as an investigative researcher and reporting assistant on an upcoming book about US intelligence in the Middle East. I've been a producer on the Economist's daily news podcast, worked on a weekly radio show in New York and written long-form features about religious spaces in Jerusalem. I've reported and produced a 30-minute audio documentary about the effect of immigration policy on mental health and spent time stalking Donald Trump's former lawyer. I've interviewed Proud Boys, priests, imams and ambassadors. I've written about money saving for The Times of London and made a video about PornHub. I've covered elections, mass shootings, terrorism, crime and a pandemic. I'm experienced in broadcast, audio and digital newsgathering and production and have reported from three continents.
Please get in touch, I'm always open to new challenges and adventures.
