Reporter, writer, producer, photographer
Hello! I'm a multimedia journalist based in London focused on international news and politics. I'm especially interested in the future of news production and how the industry can inform the largest possible audience.
In former lives I've been an English teacher in Hong Kong, a political volunteer 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 digital 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 and reporting news wires and articles. You can read some of my work for CNN here.
I also work as an investigative researcher and reporting assistant on a book about 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 holy spaces in Jerusalem. I've produced a 30-minute audio documentary exploring how immigration policy affects mental health, taken photos of white supremacists and camped outside Donald Trump's lawyer's house in the dead of winter. I've interviewed Proud Boys, priests, imams and former ambassadors, 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 on three continents.
Please get in touch, I'm always open to new challenges and adventures.
