Island in the mist, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

I'm a freelance journalist and producer based between Johannesburg and London. I cover a wide range of topics and mediums, from environmental reporting to travel writing. In 2017, I uncovered a rollerblading subculture in Nairobi, tracked rhinos on foot for a story about community conservation initiatives in Northern Kenya, and investigated the deadly global demand for sand. My work is featured in outlets including the The New York Times, BBC, The Guardian, The Times, Financial Times, NPR, the Economist's 1843 Magazine, and I am a Rough Guide to Kenya co-author. 

My live reporting at Kenya’s 2016 Ivory Burn was part of the WildAid #JoinTheHerd campaign, which won awards with Cannes Lions and The DrumWatch the video here. I was shortlisted for AITO Young Travel Writer of the Year 2017.

Originally from London, I worked at the Financial Times before moving to Africa. Previously based in Nairobi, Kenya, I was a 2016/17 board member of the Foreign Correspondents’ Association of East Africa (FCAEA), and have received hostile environment and emergency first-aid training.
