I am a freelance journalist based out of Baghdad.
I am an experienced reporter who has been covering the region since 2012, when I started covering political transitions in Tunisia following the Arab Spring. From 2014 I worked full-time at the independent Egyptian news site Mada Masr. I transferred to freelancing in late 2016 and was based out of Istanbul for two years covering gender, politics, culture, and economy.
I moved to Iraq in January 2019, where I have produced TV, radio, and print pieces for outlets including Foreign Policy, the Daily Beast, Deutsche Welle, the New York Review of Books, the Intercept, the New Humanitarian, Yahoo News, the Independent, and the Sunday Times.
