I’m an online and photo journalist focused on the U.S. and the Middle East. I’m presently based in New York City, and have spent most of my career between here and northern Iraq, Israel, Jordan and Lebanon. I primarily cover the fight against ISIS in Iraq, Kurdish politics, displaced people and refugees, the Syrian civil war, protests and politics in the age of Trump, and New York metropolitan news.
My work has appeared in Al Jazeera English, the Associated Press, Al-Monitor, The New Arab, Middle East Eye, News Deeply, Rudaw, Cape Cod Times and Brooklyn Paper.
I’m also a musician and an Arabic-English translator.
