I'm an award winning journalist and documentary filmmaker, covering international human rights and foreign affairs. I'm based in New York City, but I spend a lot of time in the Africa Great Lakes. In 2014, I was awarded an International Women's Media Foundation Reporting Fellowship and the International Reporting Project's Religion Fellowship for my work in the Democratic Republic of Congo. My multimedia work appears regularly in The New York Times, Monocle Magazine and Global Post. My print and photos have appeared in Al Jazeera America. My film production company, Zetetic Films, has produced award winning documentaries for national broadcast.
I have a Masters in Journalism from Columbia University, a Masters in Media Production from Ryerson University, and a BSc in Global Development and Agriculture from the University of British Columbia. I am passionate about long form storytelling, particularly video storytelling, but still believe that simple stories are the best stories.
My work has been supported by a Nation Institute Grant for Investigative Reporting, The Patsy Preston Pulitzer Grant for Documentary Filmmaking, The New York Emmy Foundation, The Ontario Arts Council and the Columbia-DuPoint Awards.
