I’m a London-based journalist working as VICE News’ senior reporter for international, filing news, features and the occasional video report. I write mainly about Europe and the Middle East, focusing on extremism, from Islamism to the far right.
Prior to joining VICE, I spent five years working for CNN International, with stints in both the Hong Kong and London newsrooms. I worked as a newsdesk editor and digital producer, covering international news in Asia-Pacific and EMEA, from the Rohingya crisis and the Nepal earthquake to terror attacks in Europe and the Syrian conflict.
I was a staff writer for Sunday Star-Times, a national broadsheet in New Zealand, from 2004-11, and as a freelancer have written for publications including The Wall Street Journal Europe, The Guardian, TIME.com, The Independent and Monocle.
I’m a former Fulbright scholar and graduate of the Columbia School of Journalism, and have won a number of press awards in New Zealand and the U.S.
