I currently work as a freelance photo and video journalist in Dubai. My work has been featured on the BBC, The Guardian, The Washington Post, Bloomberg and The Independent among many other publications.
I have previously worked at the Associated Press as a video journalist covering the Gulf region. Prior to that I was a multimedia producer and then a staff photojournalist for The National Newspaper in Abu Dhabi.
Some of my other cool past clients include Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations – which I proudly boast was one of the best freelance gigs I’ve ever had a chance to work on.

I’m a graduate of Boston University with a B.S.c in Film & Television and a Minor in Art History.

I’m available for freelance assignments in the UAE and abroad.
