I work as a journalist for Deutsche Welle, Germany's international broadcaster.

I'm also a freelancer currently based in Cologne.

Originally from Canada, I completed the Erasmus Mundus Master’s of Journalism, Media and Globalization at the Danish School of Media and Journalism and the University of Amsterdam in 2017.

Before that, I lived in the Dominican Republic where I worked on HIV and human rights with a local NGO.

You can find my work on ZEIT Online, Medium, CityLab, Undark, Frame Magazine, and in other places on the internet.
