Reporter, writer, producer, photographer.
Journalist based in London.
Hello! I'm a multimedia journalist based in London with a background in national and international news and politics reporting. 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 producer for CNN International where I produce, edit and curate 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 my CNN work here.
I also work as an investigative researcher and reporting assistant focused on national security and intelligence in the Middle East. I've reported from three continents and am experienced in broadcast, audio and digital newsgathering and production.
My reporting has a special interest in where politics and culture meet. This news feature from Jerusalem is a great example of that work. In 2018, I reported and produced an audio documentary exploring how immigration policy affects mental health. I also have a keen interest in photo journalism - all photos are mine unless indicated.
Please get in touch, I'm always open to new challenges and adventures.
