I am a Beirut-based freelance news and features journalist focusing on the Middle East, with particular interest in displaced populations, heritage, societal and women’s issues. Until March 2016 I worked at The Telegraph newspaper in London.

I speak fluent French and have lived in Paris, Belgium and southern Morocco. I am learning Arabic at present and have travelled widely in the Middle East. 

I have undertaken hostile environment training.

I was named Guardian Student Reporter of the Year 2012, having come runner-up in the same category in 2011. I have been shortlisted for numerous other journalism prizes, including the British Vogue Talent Contest for young writers.  I have written news and features for The Telegraph, Middle East Eye, NewStatesman.co.uk, The Sunday Times, The Times and The Guardian.

I have a First class degree in French from Oxford University, where in 2011 I edited The Oxford Student, the biggest student newspaper in the city, with a weekly readership of 15,000.
