I'm a freelance journalist working in print, video and audio. While currently roaming the U.S., I have reported from Yemen, Spain, Rwanda, Brazil, Turkey and Russia covering everything from Al-Qaeda to youth issues and the Olympics.

My work has appeared with The Washington Post, National Geographic,  The Economist, The New Yorker, Harper’s and the BBC, among other outlets. I hold M.A. in Science, Health and Environment journalism from Columbia University, have a B.A. from Middlebury College, and am proficient in Arabic.

I am grateful for the support I have, at various times,  received from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, the Society of Environmental Journalists, SAJA, the Overseas Press Club, The Deadline Club, and  GroundTruth.  For the latter, I was a co-winner of a regional Edward R. Murrow award.
