As an editor and freelancer since 2011, I have reported and written on a variety of subjects from the changing American attitudes towards Muslim women to the recent events at the University of Virginia as first reported by the Rolling Stone.

I have written for The New York Times, Al Jazeera America, The Guardian, The Los Angeles Review of Books, VICE, The Daily Beast, among many others. I have an M.A. in arts and culture reporting from Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism and a B.A. in Foreign Affairs and Middle East studies from the University of Virginia. I have a knack, strengthened by my educational background, for identifying emerging trends, and the meaning of important cultural shifts, as my work shows. My main interests are books, film, food, women’s rights, and Islamophobia. I live and work in Berlin, where I am a member of Associated Reporters Abroad, a Berlin-based news organization.
