Before freelancing, I worked as a staff writer at VICE, having spent three years and 10 months covering religious terrorism, culture, politics, and some weird stuff. I currently serve as an In-depth editor at, juggling my time between commissioning journalists, editing stories, and leading cross-border collaborations.

When I am not in the field capturing stories on the environment, human rights, technology, and culture, I am most likely spend my time gravel biking, reading, writing poetry, and collecting books, boots, outdoor gear, and vinyl. I am struggling to finish my first book that will hopefully see the light of day in 2022.
