I am a British journalist with the news site, Middle East Eye, currently based in London.
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 have written for the Guardian, TIME, Reuters, Foreign Policy, The Economist, Newsweek, and other publications. I have also worked as a correspondent for Al-Jazeera and as a stringer for Reuters News Agency.
I graduated from SOAS University with a first class degree in Politics and Arabic. A recipient of the 2012 Fulbright Alistair Cooke Award I completed an MA in Journalism and Near Eastern Studies at New York University.
