I’m a Canadian global affairs columnist and journalist, and recipient of the 2016 Fellowship in International Development Reporting from the Canadian Association of Journalists and the Aga Khan Foundation. I’m currently based in Istanbul and was previously in Beirut. Covering international trends in democracy and human rights throughout the Middle East, Asia and Europe, my work has ranged from the independence campaign in Scotland and North Koreans’ Christian conversion in Seoul, to the takeover of a government building in Ukraine and a dognapping mafia in Lebanon. I recently founded If We Were Syrian, which compares Syria’s death and displacement tolls to major world cities. Feel free to get in touch.
