I'm a freelance foreign correspondent, feature and news writer based in London. I have recently been published by The Guardian, The Times, The Telegraph, BBC World, The New Statesman, VICE and more.
I edit and commission features for national news organisations – most recently for The Times' features section, and The Telegraph's foreign news desk.
As well as working in-house, I do some front-line reporting and some not-so front-line reporting. I have written features from refugee camps in Greece and Sweden for leading news titles, filed stories from Iraq, and visited orphanages in Uganda and Rwanda. For balance, I have also interviewed Shane from Westlife.
Recent domestic stories I have covered include the pro-cannabis movement, primary schools for excluded children, and how hospitals mistreat autistic patients. I also had a column for Radio 4's In Our Time on the BBC website.
In 2016 I was shortlisted for Foreign Correspondent of the Year in the Words By Women Awards for my work on the refugee crisis, and have participated in a panel discussion on migration at King's College London. I have also been a guest on Woman's Hour, BBC Tees, and From Our Own Correspondent.
I have hostile environment and first aid training.
