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.
My work has appeared in The Guardian, Al Jazeera English, The Nation Magazine, New York Times, Christian Science Monitor, Radio France International, The Toronto Star, the Montreal Gazette, Haiti Liberte, Briar Patch Magazine, The Dominion Magazine, The Media Co-op, among others. I’ve also worked for Frontline PBS, Reuters TV, BBC and Rolling Stones.
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.
I also occasionally sells paintings and drawings.
