Hello! I'm a London-based journalist focused on international news and politics.
Currently, I'm a Senior Producer at CNN Digital where I run a team of journalists in London, Hong Kong and the US, producing and editing news for our award-winning site, TikTok and YouTube. I lead our team's international coverage, develop strategy for audience growth and work closely with field teams tell stories in new formats.
Previously, I worked as a reporter in CNN's New York bureau, covering high profile stories for TV, reporting news wires and writing digital stories -- not to mention stalking Donald Trump's former lawyer around the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I also spent two and a half years contributing interviews, research and reporting to 'The Achilles Trap: Saddam Hussein, the C.I.A., and the Origins of America's Invasion of Iraq' by Steve Coll.
In other lives, I've been an English teacher in Hong Kong, worked on a congressional campaign in Boston and once tried to serve Paul McCartney a miniature hot dog while dressed as Marilyn Monroe. I have an MS from Columbia Journalism School and an MA in History from the University of Edinburgh. I also spent a year on an international exchange at the University of Virginia.
