I specialize in writing deeply reported digital and magazine features about biocultural diversity, traditional ecological knowledge, food sovereignty, gender, drylands and decolonization throughout the Mediterranean and West Asia.

I also write news and features about research and education in West Asia and North Africa.

The following pieces give an idea of my work — and the kinds of stories I’d like to write more of.


As a journalist, I understand firsthand the importance of sharp editing and engaging writing. I provide professional editing and copy-editing services on a freelance basis to selected clients, including media outlets, NGOs and think tanks. My services span a range of content types, from news and web content to reports and white papers.


Forever curious, one of my favourite parts of my work is getting to dive in and research particular topics. If you need help getting to the bottom of something, I provide thorough and nuanced research services for reporting projects, books, documentaries and podcasts.
