Hello.

I'm a photographer, videographer, and writer based in Amman, Jordan. I'm currently the video archive editor at ARK Group DMCC, which produces documentary films aimed at countering messages of violent extremism in conflict zones.

For the last three years, I've been pursuing stories in Jordan and Turkey about the refugee crisis, women's issues, and environmental issues. My work has  appeared in several international outlets, including the Associated Press, CNN International, the Washington Post, National Geographic Online, WIRED,  the World Photography Organisation, USAID, UNICEF, the International Monetary Fund, the European Union, Der Spiegel, FIFA, NRC Newspaper, and more.
Last year I worked as a news editor with Al Bawaba, and before that I was a photo editor at AARP in Washington, DC. 

I'm HEFAT certified and can get by in English, Arabic, Turkish and French. I'm available for select freelance projects in the Middle East and Europe.

Education:
2019 - MA, Visual Anthropology, Media and Documentary Studies - University of Münster, Germany (in progress)
2015 - Missouri Photo Workshop - University of Missouri, Missouri, United States
2012 - BFA, Photojournalism - Rochester Institute of Technology, New York, United States
