I’m an independent journalist, based in Istanbul from 2015-2019, producing radio and video coverage about Turkey and its neighbors. My roots are in live TV: I previously worked for Al Jazeera English as a digital producer and editor. I have also worked in news output and forward planning. I lived in Syria and Jordan in 2011 and 2009. I speak Arabic professionally and Turkish conversationally.
I currently work in Washington DC as a senior producer for Al Jazeera English’s podcast The Take.
