I am an global freelance journalist, primarily publishing in-depth features and investigations in Asia, a vitally important region of the world that does not get enough attention in the English-language media. Topics of interest include human rights, climate, supply chains, and technology. I focus on intersectional issues, linking, for example, climate change and human rights, or supply chains and environmental degradation, across the region.

I have been awarded fellowships from the Solutions Journalism Network, The Pulitzer Center, The McGraw Center for Business Journalism, JouranlismFund EU and The International Center for Journalists, to support my work, and my features have appeared in outlets in North America, Asia, and Europe, including Vox, Financial Times, Foreign Policy, Al Jazeera, The Nation, Yale E360, Foreign Affairs, and Coda Story.

Prior to working as a journalist, I worked in advocacy communications and campaigns for organizations including the Walk Free Foundation, Sierra Club, and Kehati (the Indonesian Biodiversity Foundation)

I’m actively seeking new outlets or journalistic collaborators to work with, particularly on long-form or in-depth projects. If you’re an editor, or a fellow journalist, please contact me via social media, or at the email at the bottom of this page.
