I’m a journalist, producer and storyteller currently based in San Francisco with AJ+, the digital branch of Al Jazeera Media Network. I have an MA in cultural and political anthropology, speak five languages and aspire to master the art of public interest muckraking.

I spent over a year in post-earthquake Haiti, investigating post-earthquake aid gone wrong, tent camp evictions, problematic peacekeeping, photo-op philanthropists, disaster capitalists, corrupt elections, the cholera epidemic, the paramilitaries, the return from exile of former dictator and ousted leaders, and other stories from carnivals to junkyards to the mansions in the hills.

    Just want to say how IMPRESSED Elliot and I are with your blog, your photos, your articles, and what you are doing with your life. Your father would have been VERY proud. So keep going, stay safe, and when you need respite from it all, please come see us in Abercorn. We have a little guest room in the trees waiting for you.
