ABOUT

I’m an author, journalist, and freelance copy editor splitting my time between Greece and the United States.

Since I started journalism in 2011, I’ve reported from more than 15 countries in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. My writing has touched on migration, the rise of the far right, armed conflict, labor rights, humanitarian catastrophes, poverty, and environmental disasters, among other issues.

Between 2015 and 2019, I worked on contract for Al Jazeera English, first as a reporter and then as a senior reporter. Before that, I worked as a deputy managing editor at Syria Deeply. Before moving to Greece, I was based in the West Bank, Lebanon, and Qatar. 

My reporting has also appeared at The Nation, The New RepublicPacific StandardIn These Times, Politico EU, OpenCanada, Columbia Journalism Review, Vice News, Deutsche Welle, Middle East Eye, and others. 

My first book, Alerta! Alerta! Snapshots of Europe's Anti-Fascist Struggle, published in November 2018. Along with Nick Paleologos, I am currently working on my second book, When the Knives Came Out: Greece's Far Right, Violence, and Resilience
