I’m a London-based freelance journalist, TV producer, anthropology grad, storyteller, visual artist, and hack-of-all-trades, aspiring to master the art of public interest muckraking.

I spent over a year in post-earthquake Port-au-Prince, Haiti, freelance producing for Al Jazeera English, and writing for The Guardian, The Nation, Christian Science Monitor, The Toronto Star, the Montreal Gazette, Haiti Liberte, among others. I investigated post-earthquake aid gone wrong, tent camp evictions, perverse Peacekeeping, rogue NGOs, human rights violations, photo-op philanthropists, disaster capitalists, corrupt elections, cholera, former dictator (Baby Doc), ousted leaders (Aristide), demobilized soldiers, and other tales from carnivals to junkyards to the mansions in the hills.

I’m a polyglot (English, French, Spanish, Italian, Haitian Kreyol) and hobo (I’ve worked in Montreal, Dublin, Paris, Florence, Barcelona, Norway, London, Port-au-Prince and New York).

    Just want to say how IMPRESSED Elliot and I are with your blog, your photos, your articles, and what you are doing with your life. Your father would have been VERY proud. So keep going, stay safe, and when you need respite from it all, please come see us in Abercorn. We have a little guest room in the trees waiting for you.

    Hey – nice to meet you last night – sorry I couldn’t help with your flat tyre! At least a pleasure to get to know you a little and share part of your journey home.
