I'm a journalist based in the UK, focusing generally on crime and conflict.

I work as a reporter for VICE News and have also written for The Guardian, Wired, Rolling Stone Middle East and more.


What was your first job as a journalist?

Just started out freelancing to be honest; trying my luck by pitching stories I'd looked into.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Never for any other purpose than the novelty of using a typewriter in the 21st century.

How is social media changing news?

It's great in terms of getting on-the-ground breaking news much quicker, downside is though that a lot of unreliable sources filter through.
