hi! i’m a journalist. i became that while covering the april 2018 velvet revolution while living in armenia. since then, i’ve been covering labour, social movements, and media manipulation, often with a focus on gender. find my headlines in the Toronto Star, the Washington Post, Deutsche Welle, openDemocracy, and more. (wanna see my name in print? check the portfolio page.)

i also have some languages under my belt: talk to me in french, italian, or spanish and i can talk right back; talk to me in german or russian and i’ll figure it out.

stuff i can brag about include a the forum freelance fund for hostile environment training, a bachelor’s in conflict studies from the university of toronto, a top 30 under 30 leaders in human rights award, the kathryn davis fellows for peace award, and the jerome rotenberg memorial travel award.

but wait! that’s not all.
