I am a British journalist currently based in New York.
I lived in Sana’a, Yemen from 2010 until June 2012 where I worked as an editor at the Yemen Times and later as a freelancer reporting on the uprising that ended the 33-year rule of Ali Abdullah Saleh. I wrote for the Guardian, TIME, Reuters, Foreign Policy, The Economist, Newsweek, and other publications. I also worked as a correspondent for Al-Jazeera and as a stringer for Reuters News Agency.
I graduated from SOAS in 2010 with a first class degree in Politics and Arabic. A recipient of the 2012 Fulbright Alistair Cooke Award I am currently completing an MA in Journalism and Near Eastern Studies at New York University.
