I’m a journalist and blogger. You’ll find me between between London and Beirut/Cairo. Widely published reporter with more than four years experience in politics, security and international development.
I graduated from City University with an MA in Newspaper Journalism in 2009 before moving to Beirut. Six days after landing in Lebanon, I was covering its parliamentary elections and spent three years reporting on some of the region’s biggest developments, including the uprising in Syria and the United Nations-backed tribunal for Lebanon.
In Cairo, I covered the anniversary of the 18-day uprising that toppled Mubarak, including the Port Said football disaster and the violence that followed across the country.
I have, among other subjects, led and written investigations into: A planned Egyptian military coup; the illegal incarceration of Egyptian conscientious objectors; the causes of the ET409 plane crash; the international informal work sector; Salafist jihadists in Syria; the plight of refugees in Lebanon and Syria; food price fixing in Egypt; London’s relations with Hezbollah.
